These grave monuments amount to a box tomb set very close to the road with two upright headstones, one on either side with repaired broken 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, but someone reconnected some of the fragments leaving the box tomb inscription now complete. Updated on 20 Oct 2014 for photos made 17 Oct 2014, after the tombstone restorations in this graveyard. A giant black oak that once threatened this little graveyard has been eliminated.  If it had been allowed to decay it would have sent massive limbs smashing down on the tombs breaking them up again.
