We stopped by the cemetery today. A shopping center has been built around it but the cemetery has been preserved -- that is the good news. The bad news is that the markers for the individual graves are all missing. One had a maker with initials and it was obvious there used to be something else on the base. There is a marker stating the cemetery was used about 1860-1910 and another unexplained marker expressing gratitude to their advances to medical knowledge. (?) I would be happy to take pictures of those 2 markers and call around to libraries and see what we could find out; however, if you have a book listing this cemetery, you might already know more than I could discover!

If anyone needs pictures from cemeteries in the area, I would be happy to run and get them. I would consider working on a cemetery if there is anyone interested in helping! I would consider a very small one if doing it on my own! (I have never done this, but think it would be fun to help!)

Thanks for all you do!
