Mather Cemetery Photo Gallery

     My daughter, Kate & I, a week ago today; took off and went to the Mather Cemetery.  It was bothering me with the differences in some of the information not corresponding together.  This is the sad shape we found the tombstones in.  The cemetery is mowed, but many of the tombstones are really really old and detoriating with the weather, time, etc. There are places where there should be tombstones but none to be found.  There are also pieces of tombstones and many many footstones with initials on them and then with some decayed so badly you can not make them out. There are at least two known Veterans of the Civil War buried here from the Mather family
