A nice rock wall surrounds this cemetery with a metal gate that has fallen and no longer protects the cemetery. The privy hedge, saw briars, vines and other unnamed brush have taken over the whole premises of the cemetery inside the rock wall. As usual I found myself cutting my way into and over too each tombstone to clear it enough to make the photos. I don't think anyone has been into this cemetery in many years. The Cemetery book said it was damaged by cattle, but how could that happen with the rock fence in place. I suspect the damage is from falling tree limbs and the dampness from excessive shade and water which causes the stones to erode, especially the old soft limestone monuments. It was rainy that day, and given the shady place these stones have not dried off in ages.
