This information was submitted by Dean Stransky, a Resource Conservationist for the Natural Resources Conservation Service:

During a field survey to layout a new terrace system, a small group of headstones was found which may be an old family cemetery. I have attached a aerial photo with the location of the stones marked and photos of three of the stones.

There are four stones and what may be the remnants of a base. One of the stones is very small and could be either a foot stone or infant stone. One stone is approximately 3 feet in height and 18 inches in width and is leaning against an old fence post. The other two stones are on the ground and may be parts of the same stone. The stone against the fence post, I can make out the outline of bible but I do not have any names from any of the stones. At the time of the field investigation, I did not have the tools to make any tracings from the stones. There are marks on the stones but I was unable to make out the letters. There is what may have been a fence around the site so we did believe there are any other graves in the area. We also could not find any depressional areas that may indicate grave sites.

This site was not indicated on our maps so thought it should be reported to you.
