Gravestone Photographs

This tiny plot of ground is located at the back of a modular home community, at the end of Bluffstone Court. The two original gravestones that remain are broken and almost completely illegible. The sign tells us that the cemetery was established in 1867, though the earliest interment was in 1851. Two newer stones have been placed at the graveyard to commemorate the six family members buried in this small plot.
