"....the place was sold to a farmer by the name of Davis and this graveyard now was fenced and after he moved there, you know, bought it, he tore the fence down.  He had some cattle and he tore it down so that the cattle could go and eat the grass and stay in the shade and also built a room to the house and I understood that he went out there and got some headrocks to make the corner posts.  And Emmet come down here and I took him out there and it was pitiful to look at .. it had practically been abandoned, no interest taken in it, and nobody being buried there any more."
