|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
This family cemetery is on the north side of I-90 in a field that can be seen from the interstate. There are two Splawn and two Thorp graves, plus 12 unmarked graves. Ten of the 12 are decendants of F. M. Thorp, and two are unidentified. The marked graves are Dulcena Helen and Violet Vivian Splawn, and Fielden M. and Margaret Thorp."
There are two big stones that can be seen from I 90, and there are three (four?) small white stones in front of the two large ones, each only bearing inittials or one word.
C. A. (Charles Aarmenus) Splawn's name is on one of the stones...the only mention that he may be buried here. It is his wife and a daughter that are buried here.
The writing on the big stones:
• Margaret, "wife of F.M. Thorp" (Jan 30, 1822 - April 30, 1888), "aged 66 years 3 mos"
• Fielden M. Thorp (April 13, 1822 - Feb 11, 1893) -- the base says "F.M. Thorp"
• Dulcena Heelen [sic] Splawn, "wife of C.A. Splawn" (April 28, 1844 - May 6,1871), "27 years 8 days" -- the base says "C.A. Splawn"
• Violet Vivian Splawn (May 6, 1885 - Jan 24, 1887)
A small white stone: M.T. [ = Margaret Bounds Thorp]
