This cemetery lies in a very peaceful setting. The location is high upon a hill & far from any roads in a cow pasture, but it was properly fenced. Unfortunately in the past at sometime there was no fence so all but the infant stones were broken and the tops lying on the ground. Of course the modern granite monument of Robert Lewis Morris was standing. Most of the fallen stones I stood up for the photography and then laid them carefully back in place afterward. They were all repairable. Among other procedures they must be properly glued to stand. I chose to walk to this cemetery from the Robinson Road (the closest road) and got a good work out climbing up and down the steep hill, while carrying the equipment. That was something like a 500 feet steep climb. well I don't know the exact altitude but it was steep. While I found this cemetery using mapping, I think the owner lives to the west of this cemetery perhaps with property fronting Veto Road and should be consulted.
This Cemetery presentation is based on the photography of C.
