These grave monuments amount to a box tomb set very close to the road with two upright headstones one on either side with lost tops. This graveyard is very near the road where it can be seen by people driving by, which has subjected it to vandals in the past. A major part of the northwest corner is broken out of the box tomb leaving an incomplete surname. The missing parts may have fallen from the tomb and sunken into the ground and may be found by probing the top soil no deeper than about 3 inches. I am locking down on the surname because this is the Wilson Cemetery shown on maps. Also both upright monuments on either side of the box tomb are missing their top which contains the inscription. If you have information that would tell us the missing names on these monuments let us know at WayneAL1@aol.com.
