Pat Henning's family found a wooden plaque that was a map of Knop Cemetery. The plaque also had a list of people buried in the Cemetery.

Wilson Township gratefully acknowledges the help of Karen Walker and Keith Ogden who created a digital copy of the plaque; then found the grave sites of all persons listed on the plaque.
