Edward Crafts Cemetery: Notes

8 3 2015 12 11 36 PM

This is an abandoned family cemetery, located in deep woods on top of the hill, a quarter mile from the road on private property. It is clear there were once several more burials, but only the ones listed remain.

When this plot was read the owners expressed a desire to maintain and even to restore it, but at that time it was in poor condition from long neglect.
