Included in this collection are several journal style books. A blue journal, red journal, and another journal contain burials by lot number. A typed alphabetical index was created by the Association. Sales and deed books include a gray journal (1945-2004), and a red journal (1984-2017). The Association created a collection of obituaries from 1975 to 2017 clipped from the newspaper.
