The Cemetery Printout: Notes

"The Cemetery Printout" [no call number] is a computer printout kept in the North Carolina Room at Gastonia Main. This survey was done in the mid-1970s. The notes were done at the time the printout was created so the directions may no longer be valid! Note: Each entry contains the Code used in this list, the Cemetery Name, and sometimes Notes.
