The Graves Already Off the Hill
There are about five graves and their stones off down the back edge of the hill, behind next to Nancy Benson stone. These loved ones of some one just washed off the back of the cemetery, while nobody cared. I contacted the caretakers but got no interest out of them......

Proffitt
I am a descendant of William Caswell Proffitt through his son Jesse James Proffitt (my great grandpa) and I want to thank you for the pictures you posted. My uncle James Proffitt has done a lot of genealogy for the Proffitt family, but I am just starting out on ancestry.com.

RE: Silknitter photos
My wife and I had a short but enjoyable evening taking the pictures with several more sites.
I'm glad I could do it.
