This is a very old cemetery and the stones are standing up better than usual. The William Word & Benjamin Neighbors/(Nabors) Word monuments were the only stones that need gluing with tombstone epoxy glue. Trees falling on them are probably the cause of these fractures. There seems to have been no vandals or farming operations to have damaged many of the stones thus far. There was dense ground cover/growth - enough so that I could have missed something. [C.W.A. 22 Dec 2010]
I visited there again between the growing crops 21 Nov 2011 and glued up the  William Word & Benjamin Neighbors/(Nabors) Word monuments. I found the corner of the Jennett Word stone and glued that back on also. Also probed for the missing parts of the broken Benjamin Peete stone and found several of them, but some are still missing. The adjacent Cherry tree where it was propped against had grown over the stone lodging it into the ground. I freed the stone up by cutting thru the trunk with a chain saw and lifting the stone away from the tree. The stone was then layed upon its back on the base and the missing parts I had found were inserted under the stone so that they would not wash away in a rain storm. Hopefully when all the parts are located glue can be applied to bond all the parts together to make a complete stone.  [C.W.A. 21 Nov 2011]
