    Hi Dennis, This is a great list, but I am wondering if you would have any info on where in the cemetery graves are located. My husband is descended from Peter Doxtater and Miles Cooper, two of the founding members of Adams, who are both buried in Adams Rural Cemetery along with several of their other family members. We plan to visit Adams on vacation later this year and it would be really helpful if we could locate a map of who is where in the cemetery. Thanks.
