Inscriptions and photographs by Susan Shields Sasek.

NOTE: This was yet another "fun" excursion (I'm not very lucky on some of my cemetery jaunts). I visited the cemetery on 24 Sep 1988 after the Shields family reunion and after I went to the Hopewell Presbyterian Church cemetery.It was late, getting ready to storm, and I had 2 fussy babies in the car w/ my (now ex) husband (who kept blowing the horn for me to hurry up as we had a long drive back to Richmond). I was running around the cemetery like a crazy person trying to write down and photograph as many headstones for the Alexander and related families as I could. For the ones I didn't write down while at the cemetery, I made transcriptions from the photos after I had the film developed. There are many burials in this cemetery -- I have a typed list that my aunt sent to me (I don't know who made the transcriptions, I believe it was made in the 70s or 80s) and when I find that list, I will add those here as well. -- Susan Sasek
