Pictorial Canvass by Diane Gann and Betty Barnett

There may be burials other than those pictured here that can no longer be seen and are lost in the trees.
There are only three engraves stones left here.  We have heard that stones that used to mark burials here
were taken and sold at flea market.

They turned it over for this photograph.
