Cemetery about to be destroyed
On a knoll not to large in area, about 100 feet X 200 almost an acre. The tombstones are falling over towards the road, some trees should be planted to stop the erosion of soil.
If the soil continues to erode some of the caskets (probably wood) will be visible on the road side (small hill). I think it should be maintained as respect to the one buried there.
Poultney, town manager, Joanas Rosenthall.
The town does cut the grass around the headstones, and at one time they did place gravel on the hill side to prevent erosion
