I am researching the Fisher and Morehead families. I have been looking for some tombstones in Cedarvale Cem. but have been unable to find some listed such as Amanda Baxter Fisher. Seems that most I find missing are from the 1920-1930 time period. Does anyone know who might have information on missing tombstones or who to contact about who purchased a plot?
