* One of the unmarked graves are for Frank Lankford born Oct. 1875 and died Dec. 29, 1927. It is assumed his grave is somewhere near his wife, Rose Lankster.
** The Lankster family had a variant spelling. In the censuses from the 1800s and until the 1930s, they were Langfords or Lankfords. It wasn’t until the 1940s that the name was changed to Lankster. That is what the family is known as today.
