This cemetery had a chain link fence installed at one time. I believe farm machinery ran across the south side of the cemetery destroying the fence and plundering the stones. The only two unbroken stones are that of William & Sarah Freeman. However sadly they are wedged under a fast growing hackberry tree that is keeping them pinned against the ground. It is now impossible to remove these two stones without cutting the tree. This tree will eventually crush both stones under its weight if allowed to continue to grow.
