* Susan's name in the book is shown as BURR, not BURNS -- could be correct, or a typo, just wanted to point out that it was not a typo on my part. ** I looked in the information I have for this cemetery, hoping to find something more for you, but I did not find anything on Susan as a BURR or a BURNS.
