Other Information

I am not sure what the gravestones are made of. I have photos of the stones that still remain and photos of the cemetery site. All the stones are down. At least 2 broken. My time and efforts are there to try and preserve this cemetery, just need to pointed in the right direction.


I presently do not have a list, but could possibly obtain one if necessary.
