I would like to acknowledge the tireless work of the late Dolores Autry for undertaking the great task of indexing the names of all of the graves at Linwood. As a co-founder of the Historic Linwood Foundation, she extended her love for Linwood to ensure the preservation and continued remembrance of all those at rest within. Also, a special thanks to her husband, Marshall Autry, and her good friend, Lea Dowd, for continuing her work and persevering to ensure the vision stays alive.
And this is my memorial to all generations; that the generations to come might know them. Exodus 3:15
