The data is dispersed throughout many pages and is somewhat "out of order" depending on "blank" space on the genealogial pages. I've tracked down a number of the burial locations of these individuals, using Mihalyka's books as reference numbers. Several of them are buried on my family farm off the Trower Road, Piggen area. (Trower Road, between Wachapreague & Quinby VA).
