Other_Information:

P.G & E. keeps encroaching upon the perimeters of the Cemetery and the
traffic on the road keeps going through the barriers that we have put up.
The cyclone fence and gate that was around it was torn down and discarded
along the roadway with in the last 5 years. We put tar paper and river wash
rocks and telephone poles with stakes to keep it protected, but it has done
no good.
