The map of the cemetery itself is below, developed by SUNY Cortland students Natalie Fernandes and Jeremy Wright as part of their Final Project for anthropologist/professor Kristina Killgrove, PhD candidate, UNC, Chapel Hill, when she taught in the Spring of 2008 at SUNY Cortland). The map indicates the placement of headstones, footstones, and trees in the cemetery (to download the map, click here). More information Ms. Kilgrove's assigned project can be found at her "Bone Girl" blog.
