These photos were taken by Jon Saunders at an
earlier date. Some of the stones are somewhat easier to read. I
believe that we can see the effects of weather on some of these old stones.
I have left the text that I had originally put in when this page was uploaded.
There are some duplicate stones that are shown above. You can judge for
yourself which copy you prefer. It is truly wonderful that we have such a
wonderful heritage and that there are kind and generous people like Jon Saunders
and Midge Frazel to donate these photos.
