Description

Since Quakers did not use headstones, this has been more difficult to describe, however much work has been done by the trust over the past 5 years, especially since Mr. Juan Young present owner, wanted to bulldoze it down.

Other Problems

We just returned from a dedication of an historical highway marker for this sight. To further destroy this, as Mr. Young wants to do, is an affront to the families who were represented here. If this were Ca. it would not be allowed since such sites are well valued.
