NOTE:

There is evidence of other graves, broken concrete post, stones, etc.

Overall conditon of cemetery is pretty good.  It appears some of the

damage was caused by vandalism and some by neglect.    It also appears

some graves were moved back when the highway was 5 lanes. There is

an Archway and Gated entrance and it is fenced in.
