  • Notes 
    • The cemetery was a bit difficult to find since it was several miles east of the little settlement named Melrose..but finally talked to an old lady in Melrose who sent us directly to it! There is an old church there..and the cemetery is very well taken care of. There is a "new" part..and most of these Carpenter stones are in it...North of the church..
