Other Fieldstone marked graves around the cemetery: 4992/4993
Commentary:
This graveyard has been abandoned for many years. It has several massive monuments that stood in splendor at one time as a testimony to the class of these people. There is a stone for a Civil War Soldier who perished at Camp Douglas, a Union Prison. Some of monuments are still standing though all are threatened by cattle moving freely among them in the summer to escape the heat. Cattle dung is all around the cemetery and I am sure the stones were knocked over by the cattle and also falling trees.
