    • Our Ancestors Were

      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.

      Disclaimer! The following interments was taken from the book, "These Our Ancestors Were" which was printed in 1974.
