On 11 October 2004, Brandy Boosinger, Betty Albert, Nick Boggs, Stan & Jeanie Lowe spent the day at Cogdal Cemetery. Weeds were cut down and piled up. Three stones which had not previously been found, were located and pictures taken. Two of those stones had been read during the 1980's by the late James Toal. However, the stone for Harriet Houghton - 3 months old -- was found and it had never been recorded. Nick Boggs found two of the three missing stones - Thomas Cogdal and Mary Cogdal's stones were both uncovered.
The group plans to return to the cemetery and finish the cleaning work before putting the stones in their proper positions. The farmer and his wife, who own the farmland surrounding this old
cemetery, gave permission for the group to do the cleanup and were very gracious and helpful.
