Other Information:

cemetery is maintained by a neighbor who is unrelated to anyone buried there - union bethel church was removed decades ago, c. 1900 - land is owned by the Hills and the last living descendant is in the process of selling the land - i am worried about the cemetery and whether she can sell it along w. the land - her house on the adjacent land is a tear-down...
