Cemetery History

In the cemetery itself, no tombstones have inscriptions.  The only stone with an inscription was moved to the owners’ home and is currently propped up against the tree on the left side of their driveway.  This stone was for Charles P. Howard who died Jan 7, 1851 aged 10 yrs 11 M & 26D.  This stone looked man-made and different than all but one of the others.  The other stones in the cemetery were river rocks marking the burials graves, except for one, which was similar in construction to Charles Howard's stone.  There was no writing on this stone that we could see, but it was buried underground with the top part broken and lying on the ground near it. There are at least a total of 12 stones in the actual cemetery location and the one at the house.  Making it a total of at least 13 burials in this cemetery, arranged into 3 rows.
