|Lois Revenaugh||Harger's Cemetery photos|
Check the Harger's cemetery listings in a few days. I am adding photos that I took in August. I may have some you are interested in. Sorry it is taking me so long to get around to doing this. I've been photographing the cemetery for the past 3 years. Lois
I just sent an email to the Columbia County Historical and Genealogical Society asking for their input (I'm a member for several years now). I also plan on sending a letter to Harger's about the poor conditions in the cemetery. I will let you know what I hear. If you have any family in the Columbia area or know anyone else who has family buried there you might want to give them a heads up.
Next time I go to the cemetery I'll try to do a little weeding around some Sherman graves. Sorry I couldn't do more when I was there.
You are very welcome. I wanted to mention that two of the Sherman graves I found, Catharine and Lucy A. were both flat stones and mostly covered by overgrowth of dirt and weeds. Catharine's I had to dig out to take the photo.
There are many stones in this cemetery in that condition. I spent several hours digging out my family's stones that had almost disappeared because of the grass growing over the stone. Sadly, there are other graves barely visible now.
I'm writing a letter to the cemetery to complain and if you have other family members buried there you might want to do the same.
All the best!
