Unknown soul/souls:

This cemetery is in the midst of a new subdivision occupying some of the lots. It is maintained but not fenced.

You will notice some of the white bordered stones here. These examples of how to restore broken stones. They sink the broken parts into a cement mixture with the inscription exposed. The shape is like the original stone but a couple of inches wider and taller. As I understand it this is a blend of white concrete, white sand, and hydrated lime, but generally the concrete ingredient is much less than normal concrete mix so that the overall strength allows for more flexibility and the final product can expand and contract with rain, heat & cold, and not crumble.
