Here's a great collection of cemetery plans drawn up by WPA workers in the 1930s.

During the Great Depression, the Work Projects Administration (WPA) put millions of Americans to work on public works projects that ranged from building trails in National Parks to creating over 500 surveys of Maine cemeteries. These cemetery plans, transferred from the Office of the Adjutant General and now part of the holdings of the Maine State Archives, help us to identify war veterans final resting places.

The search function isn't working, but click "Switch View" once or twice and you'll be able to browse the plans. Here's a full list of cemeteries included:
