Work in October 2008

Carroll Edward Massie supervises cousin Ricky Massie. Stumps have been first cut to the ground level and a stump grinder brought from Lynchburg to grind them below ground level.

Status as of October 2008

We glued together many of the fragmented stones and tried to locate the graves they belonged to and set them upright.

Several grave sites are simply marked by unmarked stones.

There are an unknown number of graves that are not marked. Some are small graves, certainly children. Charles has a stone, the only one of his generation. There are graves that represent some of three subsequent generations.
