Thanks. I wonder if the cemetery has basically vanished, or has been carefully restored and maintained since that time?
But I just used Mapquest aerial maps to look at the field in back of my old house where the old graves were and got a helluva shock. The last time I looked at the old family homestead (maybe a year or two ago?) it was still basicly the same as it was 50+ years ago when I was a little tyke. But now it looks like they tore down the neighbor house and put in a road that runs right parallel along our old driveway through what used to be the neighbors yard. So in the back, it continues right along the old farmer's treeline where there was an overgrown dirt road (farmer's access to the field for his tractor?) that led back to the couple of graves I was talking about.
So right now, I'm PRAYING that somebody discovered those old graves when they put in that road and relocated them with some dignity.
Oh, my 81-year-old Mom just confirmed my vague childhood memories that there were a couple of graves back there in the woods. But it's gonna take a while before I can get her to look at the Mapquest aerial map to take a closer look. (She probably won't remember that detail anyway. It was Dad who took me on the hike back in the woods to see the graves. Mom wasn't in to that sort of thing.)
