The Legion Memorial Cemetery does not have clearly defined sections or rows. For the convenience of the recording committee, it was divided and recorded according to the sections below. The names in each section were recorded row by row beginning at the west boundary and working to the east.

The map is not drawn to scale but is a rough sketch showing the general areas that were recorded. The recordings were done on November 1 and November 2,1994 by the following Bruin-Vidal DAR members: Mrs. Keith Capdepon, Mrs. Alton Browning, Mrs. W.E. Hawkins, Mrs. Burton Ziegler, and Miss Mary Bondurant.
