This graveyard has been destroyed by vandals or or succumbed to time & neglect. It is now void of any formal standing memorials. Left there are fragments of gravestones that have bits and pieces of inscriptions which are enough to give information, but also leaves questions. This author has done a brief and non-invasive scientific study of this graveyard looking for clues as to who in the Alexander Black family is interred here in this old lost & abandoned gravesite.
