Hi Joyce:
How nice of you to do this extensive data collection and listing!  I've found your work very useful in tracking down some family histories.
There is an error  on your website in the date of death for my Uncle Franklin Bohlayer buried at Beech Flats.  You have the year as 1997.  Franklin actually died in 1987.  I suspect that this was just a simple typographical error, but one that I'm sure you'd like to be able to correct.  By the way, Franklin once owned the Bohlayer-Manley farm just around the corner and, over time, gave two parcels of his property to the Beech Flats Cemetery to allow them to expand.  His last gift is marked by a bronze tablet embedded in a stone column at the entrance of this additional parcel.
