Older headstones were often made of sandstone, which is susceptible to severe weathering and can often be difficult to read. On July 18, 1942, headstone inscriptions were copied by Mrs. E.P. Slooter, Mrs. John J. Mikula, Mrs. Earl P. Price and Mrs. Merrick Hanchett from the Old (East) Section. They were copied on October 2 of the same year by Mrs. E.P. Slooter, Ms. John J.
