Notes: This transcription includes photographs and readings of almost 800 markers in the churchyard cemetery and over 250 markers in the church's cemetery on the hill to the north of Altalaha.
Many stones in the churchyard appear to be missing, perhaps buried, and others are broken or otherwise weathered with age; however, the cemetery is well maintained. The oldest burial we've found is 1783. Some additional markers were removed in years past and have been used as path stones in the herb garden at the (former) sexton's house at the west end of the cemetery.
