Well, there you have it - my partial list of tombstone inscriptions from Kisling Cemetary. I hope this helps out other genealogists. If you have any comments, corrections, suggestions, or questions, please email me. Thanks! Kent



INDEX

Names are grouped by last name, listed within each group alphabetically by first name.

Un-named people (e.g., "infant daughter") are listed at the end of the surname group.

People with multiple surnames are listed multiple times (once for each surname) and the entire name is usually listed each time. For example, Anna JEWELL BERRY is listed under both BERRY and JEWELL. (Sometimes, a name with multiple listings has the full name only for earlier name entires, and just the final surname on the final entry. I think I have caught all these incomplete entries, but maybe I have missed some....)
