This cemetery is fenced, occasionally mowed, but not maintained. The
grass was tall at this visit. A dumpster was in the corner and trees
and branches were being taken away. This cemetery has mostly stack stones,
some old and some modern. Most are leaning to the east, into the grave
depressions. Some stones have already fallen, but many others will
soon. There are a couple broken stones, probably as a result of vandalism,
since they are thick, sturdy stones and not near any trees. One burial list
noted that there were 130 graves marked with wooden headboards (which are
gone now if they existed).
