                     .....The condition of the cemetery can be rated as " sub-standard poor", 
                                                                                                        except, for the top area.  
                                                                                                    All of the normal activities, 
                                                                                                                    of Mother Nature, 
                                                                               have gone un-checked for many years.
                                         ......................................................................
