Hello,
I just wanted to give you an update on Hewitt Cemetery.  My other half and I took a ride out in hope of taking headstone photos.   Hewitt Cemetery is so overgrown that there are no headstones visible period.  If it had not been for us stopping to ask a gentlemen if we had the right area and being given the exact spot one would have never known there had once been a cemetery there.  Perhaps you could add a note in regards to this on the cemetery page , to let others know.  S & M Marshall  July 19, 2004

Hi:
In June 2008 I visited this cemetery where my 4G-grandparents are buried and found their rather large stones easily. The grass had been mowed recently. While this small cemetery is not well kept (it is on private property and is, in fact, the front yard of a rental trailer) when the grass has been cut, one can read many of the stones there. The landowner lives up the next driveway north and was amenable when I asked permission to visit the cemetery. The renters were less friendly. If anyone locally wants to "adopt" this cemetery, please contact me for financial support! cindypursel@hotmail.com


Thanks to Anita Sharpsteen for transcribing these records into a digital format.
