From me (Kristina Kuhn): March 31, 2001: My hubby and I went to find this cemetery. Floyd Dunaway had requested photos of the stones. It was a "Kris and Ken adventure" for sure! after walking up and down the creek bank and "knolls" repeatedly, we finally we had to just ask a neighbor. It was a good thing we did! His name was Doug Weaver. He was great helping us out. Took us right to the spot. Nearly all the stones were partially covered but one. Ken found a metal fence post lying near and he used that to jab into the ground listening for a "clink" indicating a possible tombstone. We pried up all we found and pulled them out. I rubbed them off with sticks and dead grass getting them readable to photograph. It was quite exciting to find yet another one each time and while cleaning them off to slowly be able to read what was there. I felt like an archeologist!! Even Mr. Weaver got involved going to his house to bring back a screwdriver for "probing". The down side of the story is of course the "horror" of this cemetery neglect. Mr. Weaver told of them being bulldozed to their present location to make room for the road years ago. What a sad state they are in as if part of a rubble pile! Who knows where the actual graves are....
