Kate & I visited this cemetery with a very kind gentleman from the Kingston area of Adams co., who showed us how to get there.  Thanks. Have to look up his name as I'm not very good at remembering people's names.  Hope to get to see him again when we travel down to Adams County, for another visit Have photos of every tombstone here in this cemetery.

Box for your contributions of a tombstone photo,

Thanks... email is at bottom of page click on my hand...


We didn't get all of the tombstones because

 I didn't have any chalk or anything to clean

off the black stuff on the older ones with us.

But there is one down there we got of John

Williams who wasn't in the
