Cemetery Inscription
Early 1800's to mid 1900's
Cemetery Read by Marc Young


When I arrived at the site of the cemetery, I was impressed by how well the Church building and cemetery grounds were being taken care of.I was able to copy down as much info as was observable. Several yrs later I returned to make sure I had not missed anyone and to double check what I had already copied. Much to my horror every stone was gone!!!

A memorial had been created to the west of the Chapel to those who had been buried on the other side of the church. Several of the stones had been saved and were placed around the memorial.Upon inquiry of the church pastor I was informed that there were no original records and because there were no living relatives, the members of the current church had the stones removed from the site
