Hi Leah!

I am on a committee that is currently restoring the cemetery and we are looking for anyone that might be interested in joining our committee,helping out at the cemetery or making a donation to help with the cost of repairs.

So far we have cut and cleared out the entire west fence line that had taken over this end of the cemetery and we uncovered 4 very large headstones that were buried in this mess. We have replaced the page wire fence along the west fence line and have reset and made repairs to many of the stones. We do however have many more to do. We would like to replace the page wire fence across the front with black chain link fencing next year if we can raise the funds.

We haven't had much luck in finding descendants of those buried in the cemetery, this is great to find you!

On Sunday August 26th 2012 we are planing a Memorial/Celebration to show those that have sent donations just what work we have done so far. We will have a service, musical entertainment and refreshments. Just bring a lawn chair!
