This cemetery was at one time fenced and protected, but large trees and limbs have destroyed much of the fence. It has now been abandoned and just since these photos were made has grown up in Brush making a visit now an encounter with thorns, briars and other vicious thickets. Another generation has passed as far as ownership is concerned and unlike the old man the current inheritors care nothing for the cemetery or at least shown no interest in it thus far. [2010 CWA]
