This cemetery is on private property. The new owner decided to build a house. He moved all the stones, cleared the land around, laid a SEPTIC FIELD on top of the cemetery, then covered it with several feet of dirt ! The stones are piled under a tree. He started the foundation of a house. He was legally stopped, and now the case is dragging on in court, trying to decide what will be done with the cemetery.
