I found that occasionally "old" is when they talk about the cemetery BEFORE it
was enlarged or expanded. As time goes by most cemeteries had to expand to accomondate
the "new" arrivals. . .
One cemetery I visited had twice expanded and was even in the process of another expansion
when I was there the second time. The caretaker said the "old" reference was
mainly meant to be the part of the cemetery that started before the Civil War.
