Condition:
This cemetery is partially fenced but not mowed or maintained.  It is in a square of trees in the middle of a large field.  Many big rocks have been piled around the edges. The inside is overgrown with weeds and thick briars. In 2008 there were many large blue plastic pipes piled in the cemetery on top of stones.  No stones are standing and most tablet stones are broken.  There is also a pile of stones along the edge of the cemetery that was not there in 2005.  This cemetery is in danger and badly needs restoration and maintenance.
