This stone should have been cleaned better because I cannot now read the Month of death on Henry T. Butler. It is covered by dry mud. Also the exact year of death as the "0" in 1870 is pretty much presumed though I can see it is a curved numeral. The tombstone readers of years ago read the death date as 29 May 1870. The Stone Carvers were Morris Brothers as inscribed. This stone is sadly broken and though the grounds are  fence it is neglected. This is a perfect example of a graveyard that should be moved to a bigger nearby graveyard where maintenance can occur.
I went to visit this graveyard in 2011 during the summer and due to the high fence situation and high weeds I saw no visible stones. Went back in Nov 2012 when the weeds were gone I found visit there was at one formal tombstone here.
