Cemetery List

“Orphans in the Cemetery” by Vasily Perov

Human nature will not flourish, any more than a potato, if it be planted and replanted, for too long a series of generations, in the same worn-out soil. My children have had other birthplaces, and, so far as their fortunes may be within my control, shall strike their roots into unaccustomed earth.
~ Nathaniel Hawthorne
(The Scarlet Letter)

Some of the cemeteries where our ancestors lie buried. The ones shaded in gray are the resting places of our parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, 2nd-great-grandparents, and 3rd-great-grandparents. The other cemeteries hold more distant progenitors.

The numbers in parentheses after each name indicate the individual’s number on the Ancestor Table.
