RE: Martin & Ellen Higgins
Hi Thomas,

I live very close to St. Phillips and decided to tackle it as a first project. I visited and took photos twice in March of this year. The monuments are indeed in bad shape. I approached the church office about getting permission to view records and discussed the condition. They were very uncertain of my activities and said they never release private records, but I got an OK to continue my archiving. I would love to clean and repair the stones. Many have toppled over and some have sunk in the ground. I poked a stick in the ground in several places and hit stone. I still need to spend a few more hours and visits to photograph the rest of the cemetery. I'm about halfway there. I have photos of several dozen that are not readily legible which will require other means of transcription.

The two Higgins' stones were interesting finds. Both were first observed as mounds of vegetation. I literally unburied them. I will post the "before" pictures so you can see how these could have easily been missed.

Glad I could help!
