 NOTE: While trying to take photos a nice lady Jean Cavenaugh Stephens which had own the farm for about 20 years. She told us when she first came to the farm the cemetery was very beautiful it had a nice iron fence and a nice gate she told us she enjoyed coming down and admired the stone. But then a Hurricane blow down a large tree and it is at the point of being destroyed. See the photos.
