UPDATE:
On 19 December 19 1998, I received a document from Jennifer E. Moore providing me with data she collected on a journey to Burr Oak in the fall of this year to be added to this file. With thanks to Jennifer, I've provided her file as received at the end of the Sanborn Cemetery file as originally provided to the USGenWeb. I've taken the liberty of inserting her data into the original file I submitted so that is becomes less confusing. We'll continue to attempt to fill in these mound identifications until they're as complete as possible. Thank you Jennifer. Submitted 20 December 1998 by Josephine Reed Garzelloni
