I compared this list of pictures to the listing of this cemetery in "Grant District Cemeteries", and it seems there are over 90 more graves. Some may be unmarked and some may had stones that have been destroyed or just can't be read. Several in the book are noted as having no stone or having a metal marker or funeral home marker. The book is copyrighted and we do not have permission to copy it here, but the surnames of those who are missing are as follows:

Angus
Barnhart
Buckbee
Carnichael Conger
Dailey
Enoch
Forshey
Griffith
McCauley
McCord Morgan
Nesselroade
Petry
