Other problems: This cemetery has two graves marked with stones-these have been moved where they lean against a tree to protect them from the cows which wander about there. The third grave is marked by only the the four or five courses of dry stones set in an oval about 4' x6'. The cattle continue to wander about and could destroy the third grave completely in time.
Previous contacts: Spoke with the woman who lives nearest location of this very small cemetery. Don't know if they have done anything more to protect this cemetery than just to move the beautiful head stones up against a tree.
Work Status: No work started as of yet
