This cemetery is on the verge of destruction. The one large monument is predominant and is in danger of tumbling into the bank. The small stones are broken and I found one stone being used as a fill to stop erosion under a nearby fence. Condensed and edited from Dorothy Johnson's commentary 1989. When there I ask permission of the lady to visit this cemetery, however I soon realized another member of the family stood out on the grounds in the distance with a mean looking bull dog and stared at me as I cleared enough to make the photos. I was unaware of his motives, but was a bit unnerved by his actions. but finished and cleared the premises.
