The cemetery was not being cared for well, and the last few years I have been taking care of it. Samuel Bowman is my G-GFather and David Bowman is his brother. I will be very glad to help anyone with indentification of these burials and would be interested to meet their descendants. I have photographed the existing stones and have a booklet ready for printing -- just have not had it done yet.
