Description
There are two visible upright headstones, in this small old overgrown fenced-in area. The one by the gate is little Erwin Becker; 7months old in 1947. The other headstone is a hundred years earlier , 1844, of a couple. He was John and died in August ,1844 at 52 it looks like. She died in February and her name[if there] and both last names are hard to read. I have never seen barbed wire around a cemetery and may have been used to a long time ago to emphasize division. The property had no name on it in 1880. There was a cheese and cabinet factory close by in 1880. Pinehill cemetery was present then too and is only a few miles to the east and wasn't used. There was a church to the southeast a few miles away that is gone now that might have had an answer. Why are these graves here to spend eternity and where are their families? That is the question that may never be answered.......August 2016; Gate post severed at base from long time rot and neglect. The rest of the fence will follow. Inside, is as bad as it can be. It would have been nice if the person who mowed around it, mowed inside too.
