Sadly there is a pile of discarded stones in a corner of the cemetery, next to the fence. Of the dozen or more stones in the pile, only one has a readable name: Brounmiller, George. A local farmer & his wife were visiting the cemetery the day I was there. They told me that when the church was moved, many of the gravestones were knocked down and pushed into a pile next to the fence. Sharyl Ferrall
