Volunteer Session - April 19, 2016

On this beautiful afternoon, Scott Andersen and John King spent about 2 hours continuing to improve the look of the cemetery. They installed two bases that Scott had made and then installed the stones in the bases.
They also located part of a missing stone in the stone wall. Although the inscription was not easy to read, Scott and his wife Venus spent some time studying the two pieces and determined it belonged to Woodbridge Cottle, who died in October 22nd, 1833, at the age of 2. They were able to positively identify its original placement in the yard.
The missing piece to Nancy Adams' tombstone was also found. It was buried near the gravesite. Scott was able to epoxy it back together.
Ideas were also considered as to what area to work on with our next group of volunteers.

Many thanks to ALL the volunteers who help throughout the year making this a very successful project.

More sessions will be planned for the future to continue this massive effort. If you would like to participate, give the Society a call and check our website calendar.
