Cemetery about to be destroyed
The only records that I am aware of are the recordings I did of the stones--any others unknown.
Neighbors told me there may have been a church associated with the cemetery. No one knew a denomination. Steep hillside, along a gravel road, but unseen from the road.
Cattle, vandals, hunters, elements, and general neglect.
Made the conditions known through TV program--no response. Contacted local 4H club for possible use as community service project-no response. Descendant family interested, but unable to care for it due to age and distance. I would be willing to help clear and restore this cemetery, if permission to do so is granted from the owner. Possible scout, or community group project.
In desperate need of attention, or the cemetery will be lost. Can't even be seen standing right in front of it due to heavy undergrowth and trees.
