|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
This cemetery is referred to as GR11 Walnut Grove Cemetery in the "Vital Records of Danvers Massachusetts to the end of the year 1849".
It should be noted that 10% or more of the memorials listed in the cemetery have typos. These look to be transcription errors from handwritten records. Find a Grave is being updated as each issue is noted. Accordingly, memorials with pictures are more reliable than those without. A list of these errors will be provided to the cemetery to update their online records in due course. With 9000+ headstones, this will take a while. If you note a correction that should be made, please notify the memorial manager.
If you are working this cemetery and find a name that does not show up in the online records or on Find a Grave - figure out who else is in the same plot, then look up the plot to see who is buried there - most of the time you will find your person with a typo.
Sections A, B and C have been fully photographed.
Section C has furthermore been gone over using cemetery records for each missing internment to check that any headstone was not missed. That effort is pending for sections A and B. Each of these three sections is missing ~500 photograph-able headstones, whether from damaged headstones, lighting, poor records or Christmas wreaths.
Section D has yet to be started in a methodical manner.
Over the past 7 months the team has taken the cemetery from 3% photographed to 61% photographed. They are hoping to hit 80%.
