Other Information

Last year the Department of Natural Resources burned off this area including the cemetery. Tombstones were covered with burn areas, soot and some tombstones exploded to jigsaw pieces from the moisture in them when it was burned off. Deplorable condition. Cemetery includes Civil War Vet and other War Vet graves.
