Photo #1:
The white stone in the top right is GGG Grandfather Benjamin Upton's, and to the left, the base and the pedestal.
Below that is his daughter Florence McNorell's stone, and to the left of it, the base. Just above Florence's base you can see a small marker, that of her son Benjamin Lafayette McNorell.
Below Florence's and to the left is a small flat piece of what looks like concrete - the next trip proved this to be the base for daughter Sissy's stone.
Below this is the base and stone for another daughter Annie L. Upton. For each grave there is a head stone and a foot stone and all the grave stones are facing east.
In the photo you can also see the once perfect but still beautiful iron fence.

Photo #2:
When I first started raking, I found what I thought was a small marker. I started to uncover it and found another piece on top with a little lamb or dog whose head had been knocked off long ago.
I realized that the dates were not on this piece and started clearing around a barely visible stone next to the marker. My photo did not get the entire body of the animal.
