*From death records compiled by Fred Hawkins. No memorial was found in this cemetery during 1987 or 2009.

The two stone I found needed to be cut out from the brush. There was not a hint of any memorials if one peeked over the fence into the cemetery due to dense briars & brush. Strong arms and a pair of loping shears works wonders in 30 minutes of cutting and mashing down thickets. Of course it is impossible in these circumstances to make a credible record of the cemetery, because the ground needs to be clean enough for grave analysis to draw the appropriate conclusions so we defer that to the future.
Among the brush a row of daffodils bloomed profusely. These were probably planted there many years ago by a living member of the Wisener family and bloom forth every spring time to announce  their colorful display. [WA 24 Mar 2009.]
