Dick Moore of the Crawford Cemetery Board points to an exact section, lot and gravesite on a new map. GPS locations and walking every inch of the cemetery taking notes has created the most up-to-date maps and records of those buried there. Maps and records are kept on file at Crawford Library.
Finding a gravesite of an ancestor or friend can be a daunting task. Old maps do not take into account the rolling nature of the landscape. Every gravesite appeared to be in vertical and horizontal alignment and in regular sizes. But they're not.
