sm-rowe-001.jpg - 9745 Bytes Picture of the entrance to Rowe Cem. taken 5/15/2002.Some one had mowed around the stones. I have pictures I will share of all the stones left.
The cemetery veers to the right after this and a path mowed to graves in the back. I am still sure there are more stones there to be found.
