Introduction by Myrna Moss

Please forgive me for any errors and remember, it could be worse - THERE COULD BE NO RECORDS AT ALL! You may find errors due to any number of reasons:

  1. I AM human. I tried very hard to read the tombstones but some are in extremely bad shape and unreadable.
  2. Some stones have incorrect information.
  3. I researched many family records and historical records and even contacted many families. I appreciate all the help from these sources but know there are still some mistakes (even families don't always agree on the spelling of names, dates of births and/or deaths, etc.).
  4. From the time I did a "walk-through" of the cemetery in 1999 (row by row and grave by grave) until I typed these records in 2002, there have been changes.  Although I've tried to keep the records up-to-date, you must remember that I'm not always notified if someone places a marker where there was none, or added a date where there was none, or replaced a damaged stone.
  5. Also, I have included names of people that are NOT YET DEAD! If there is a stone with information, I have included it in these records.

There may even be more people buried in Cottage Cemetery than what I have listed, only because I do not know about them. This is an OLD cemetery and many of the older stones - if they even existed - are now completely gone. If you know about any burials here and find no listing, please contact me. Also, please feel free to make additions or corrections to these records. I do, however, ask that you notify me of any changes so I may fix my cemetery copy.
