The following cemeteries are both at the same location. The Cemetery and the Mausoleum Cemetery listed are at same location as one Cemetery Mausoleum should be part of the initial cemetery and should be joined as one
Initial Cemetery link:

Saint RafaŽl Cemetery
these three listings can be merged.
Adjust map 45.473163,-71.507114
Change name to Saint Raphael Cemetery - that's what is on the sign. I have added some photos - not yet approved.
A search for Saint Rafael, without the accent, returns No Matching Records, which may be one explanation for all the listings.
So I leave it to you to use the accent or not.
One further note - this cemetery is listed as Saint RafaŽl Cemetery on another web site. Add an AKA ??, again I leave it to you.

Bown Cemetery Canterbury
Remove Canterbury from cemetery name and
add map 45.480026,-71.41849

I just added this cemetery and only moments later realized I transcribed from the wrong notes. My apologies!

Cemetery Primary Name: Bowdoin Burial Grounds at Riverside Farm
SHOULD BE NAMED: Bowdoin Burial Grounds near Oyster

Many thanks!

The above cemetery has an AKA of Old Friendship. Can you add that to it's page. I would like to be able to write something about it on the cemetery's page if at all possible. I am not sure that it was ever known as Starnes Springs Cemetery. Starnes Springs was a community but I was informed that the cemetery was called Old Friendship. My member # is 46978389. My e-mail is fayect55hotmail.com. Thank you. Glynda Tucker

This cemetery and this cemetery need merging as Vaughn Cemetery with an AKA of Vaughn-Coss Cemetery (coordinates on 7393 are correct)

Prospect Cemetery is at 32.031275, -94.68204

This cemetery and this cemetery need merging as Rhodes Campground Cemetery (coordinates yet to be determined)

This cemetery and this cemetery need merging as Old Shiloh Cemetery with an AKA of Shiloh Cemetery and is at 31.888176, -94.817449

Moss Cemetery is at 31.953132, -94.595279

This is actually Mount Moriah Cemetery and it is actually at 31.865255, -94.482792 (previous coordinates pointed to the adjacent church, not the cemetery)

Mapps Cemetery is at 32.26421, -94.656664 .... this cemetery page has an external link in its description that is not official, as well
