Just ran across the Nevada Co. Cemetery Records and found that all but one of the Harrells listed are fairly close kin to my husband, in fact Robert C. Harrell is his father. I did find an obvious error: Philip S. Harrell's year of birth is listed as 02/08/1956 and death as 03/21/1932. The mistake is that 1956 should be 1856.
