Gravestone Photographs

When members of the Franklin County Genealogical Society indexed the Stevenson Cemetery in 1981 they found no stones standing.  Some progress seems to have been made since then and when we visited the cemetery on January 1, 2004 we found a row of stones that had been placed in permanent standing positions.  More than half the stones were illegible, but they are shown here in the order that they appeard in the cemetery--left to right in the photograph above.
