This gravesite & Henry's was found & created by Jerry White and he being the very nice & generous person that he is, transferred both Memorials into my care. Neither is actually buried here, but the only people that are apt to recognize them are ones who are descendants of the siblings of both Henry and Luke.
A lady, Barbara Munson, has just added Luke's Gov't Marker.
