This small cemetery is enclosed in a high rock wall
with no entrance. It is badly grown-up in bushes and weeds with the trees
threatening the wall and the memorials. Mr. Fred said this in 1987 and it is even

collapsing under the lower part and will soon completely fall on that side
leaving a place 10 feet wide without a fence.
