Below are some photos Kate, Jorden, & I took when visiting this cemetery over the Fourth of July week end.
you may click on any photo and it will open in it's own window for a better view. Thanks!
This Cemetery could use some tenderly loving care. It's back off a main road by a cornfield. Have to look up the directions as I just go there automatically. There are many tombstones that are broken and lying on the ground or covered up altogether. Kate dug some up and with the photos when I get them online you will see for yourself. It gets mowed and some put flowers and flags out but many of the older tombstones are going to be lost if something is not done to prevent this. So, if you have relatives buried here please feed my doggie below with emails so we can do something to save these tombstones. Thanks... Happy Daysss....
This Cemetery is very much in need of some help. If you would care to donate your time, donations to help with repairs, have family buried here, or anything you could do to help in the rebuilding of this cemetery either click on my doggie to email me or write me at
Anything you can do to help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your time.
