Transcribed by Patrick Hays patrick@migrations.org
Copied: June 1, 2002 (what better way to spend a day kicked out of the house because of a
baby shower!)    Photos were submitted by Ivan Baugh on a trip he made to the cemetery in May of 2006.

the transcription

Ivan Baugh also submitted this diagram of the cemetery plot.
Cemetery near corner of Lees Lane and Cane Run Road and is on property of Farnsley Middle School 
and is behind Farnsley-Kaufman House, which was built in 1811.  The cemetery is gated, but is in 
poor condition.  Most of the stones have been damaged.  There are some trees, but overgrowth 
is not a problem.

The following are all on one stone:
 (The ornamental top part is broken off of this stone.  There are several smaller stones around it representing footstones.)
