When my husband and I bought our house we also took ownership of the 200 year church and cemetery that was on the property. It was abandoned by the congregation sometime between 1920 and 1930 and most of the bodies were relocated to different cemeteries. What you see are the graves of those that were left behind. Most of these are small children and babies but the reverend and his family are still located here as well as a few other adults. Sadly the cemetery was vandalized in the 1990's so many of the stones are propped up against trees because we have been unsuccessful at finding a plot map. A majority of the people in the cemetery were born in the 1700's and died in the 1800's.
