This cemetery is well kept and has a tiny stone foundation about 10” high which would indicate a church may have been here at one time.

You will notice that Augustus and Joseph Morden seemed to have suffered a large tragedy in the loss of 6 children within a 5 day period. I can only assume that it was due to illness. Robyn Buffett.
