Miscellaneous Pictures from summer 2000- spring 2001
This is what we call the "gap" where we suspect the missing stones belong.
We're going to try and get them replaced if we can find where they belong.
This is in the back section. As you can see, 1/4 of this stone is missing.
We've searched the immediate area, and have had no luck locating it so far.
We have managed to check an old partial DAR list and found the names
on the stone, though, so it's not totally lost.
This tree, also in the back section, is holding up several stones left
leaning there. We aren't sure if these stones belong nearby or if someone
was trying to save them from being hit by a mower and moved them.
Not far from this shot is the large fallen limb and the brush piles.
This was taken in the front section, somewhere on the northern side looking
southeast. The stone lying in the grass is a spire that has been knocked
off of its base. We suspected vandalism, but after working there for
a few days, we've noticed that the ground is settling very unevenly, and
that could account for some of the damage as well with some of these stones.
In places, we've found entire civil war markers, which are close to 3 feet
long, sunken in to the point where 6 inches are visible.
This is only one of two images from this spring to survive our computer crash.
In an effort to protect the stones in the area, our volunteers, Kim and Minda
pulled all the branches off the large limb you see in the picture and
piled them in a bare spot. We still need to get someone with a chainsaw
and a truck to help us get rid of these obstacles. Also, note the grasses
in the background, there are at least twenty stones in there, and the grass
in places is shoulder height, with briars all through it.
This was our first view of the back section of the cemetery for the year.
As you can imagine, we were horrified to see how much it had grown
