RE: Hi Joe
Hi David,

The cemetery is located near Roark Branch and is known as the Roark Cemetery and the Isaac Back Cemetery. I don't know which is the earliest name. Joe

RE: Ricci Photo
You are welcome. It was a challenge to get that photo. At first I thought that his name wasn't on the stone, but then found it behind the tree. They must have planted the trees when the first burial took place in the plot and now they're huge.

RE: Roark Cemetery
I am a trifle confused here, this is Cave/Dixon Cemetery in "Old" Paris, Indiana. The problem here is the cemetery is on private property the house that is next to it is no longer lived in so you can go in at the moment. Previously the owner strongly discouraged entrance. There is no telling what will happen if the property sells again or someone moves into the house that is on it. Here in Indiana owners cannot destroy an old cemetery but they do not have to do anything to maintain it either.
