Courtesy of Kim Marie Peters:
Photo 1 - With that done, I knew I had just one more grave to find. I stopped for a moment to take a few photos and continue with the removal of the mulch/root mixture to clear the entire plot. Just about then, it began to rain. I was about to give up and CLINK! I uncovered the base which had been upended by a tree and continued clearing in front of it. I'd found James! If you look at the photo above Adaran, you can see the base with the pedestal placed back on top by the fence on the left and the stone to the right.
Photo 2 - Courtesy of Kim Marie Peters - The white stone in the top right is GGG Grandfather Benjamin Upton's, and to the left, the base and the pedestal. Below that is his daughter Florence McNorell's stone, and to the left of it, the base. Just above Florence's base you can see a small marker, that of her son Benjamin Lafayette McNorell. Below Florence's and to the left is a small flat piece of what looks like concrete - the next trip proved this to be the base for daughter Sissy's stone. Below this is the base and stone for another daughter Annie L. Upton. For each grave there is a head stone and a foot stone and all the grave stones are facing east. In the photo you can also see the once perfect but still beautiful iron fence.
