Gravestone Locations of the 8th Ct. Vol.

My initial, and still primary, interest is to learn all I can about the original musicians of the 8th. In my research, however, I've learned the burial stone locations of several other members as well. So I've combined efforts with a few pards (like Lou Santos, Tim Bingham, and Hal Elwell) who have been seeking these old graves for a while now, and thought I'd share our results with you.
If you have some information that could help us, please
email me! (Thanks!)
