Rainy, but work continued July 8, 2015

Despite a damp and dreary day, spirits were not dampened for Scott and Venus Andersen, Melanie Peters, Harold Schmidt and John King as they continued to work on the burying ground. Work began at 7 a.m. and continued until 10 a.m. You can see from the pictures below that we continue to make progress.

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.


These massive markers in the Lucas plot needed some muscle to level and straighten.

Looking better now.



This partial stone was found buried below the marker shown to the right. It was replaced there when the marker was re-aligned.


This broken stone, also shown to the right, was leveled and will be repaired at a later date.


This stone was broken at the base and the base was broken in half. It was re-positioned and will have further repair in the future.

Melanie Peters does an excellent job cleaning stones! Scott and Harold in the background.

Venus Andersen, master cleaner!

This small, but heavy stone was re-aligned and leveled.
