"This plot map was obtained by Marge & Joe Geiskopf from the people who take care of the cemetery grounds. The names on the plots appear to be those of the plot owners, rather than the names of individuals buried in the plots. The names of the apparent plot owners are below, and I've added information about my Kring family. All spellings shown as handwritten on the map. I don't know who drew the map or when it was drawn up. Clearly it isn't a recent drawing and I can't attest to its accuracy or completeness. Contributions of information about other known burials in these plots and headstone photographs would be appreciated."

McCaffrey Stones: "____ McCaffrey, Wife of Howard Taylor, Died Jan. 28, 1920, Aged 27 Years, and "Howard Taylor", dates obscured by lichen.

Stafford Monument

Broken Kring Headstone: probably Henry Kring (1803-1871)

Obelisk and Flag: Kring plot is just behind the tree.

Illegible Kring Stones: Two illegible Kring graves, which show the amount of sinking some of the stones have incurred. Some have probably sunken underground and aren't visible at all now.

Kring Plot and Wall

Stone of Orville Kring: Orville H. Kring (1830-1918), son of Henry & Matilda (Sprague) Kring

Stone of Alice J. Kring: Alice J. Kring (1854-1920), daughter of Orville & Elizabeth (Neher) Kring

Kring graves: stone of Alice Jeanette Kring, daughter of Orville and Elizabeth (Neher) Kring, at lower right corner, is partially legible.

Neher Plot: the NEHER plot, although no stones are visible on it. However, showing this plot online might alert NEHER descendants to go see whether there are sunken markers. I suspect that, at minimum, Zachariah Neher (Jr.) is buried here.

Stone of Matilda Sprague Kring: grave of Matilda Sprague Kring (1803-1843), 1st wife of Henry Kring, daughter of Roger Sprague and Eunice Case. Most of stone is not legible.
