Genie, When you ask Union Dale for the info, be sure to ask who purchased the plot and when. Also get the info for all the other who are buried on the plot. Clare Pebworth

You could order the cemetery records from Union Dale. I believe they
charge $10 for a copy of the records.
They other thing would be to try to find church records.
