Bio

Bethel cemetery was destroyed in 2018. The bodies and stones have been removed by FedEx so they could expand. At some point, FedEx will leave that area, but the cemetery will still be destroyed.

Bethel is an old cemetery started in 1838. Companies come and go, but once you destroyed history it is gone forever.

Bethel is at: https://old.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=cr&CRid=1936294

I use Google Earth to find the latitude and longitude. I type in the latitude and longitude for the graveyard and then adjust the numbers until the pointer is on the gravestone.
