Reburn Cemetery


In an e-mail from James Hedges:

Here is a photo of Reburn Cemetery. The large headstone in the foreground is the marker of my g'grandparents, WC & Hattie Hedges. The cemetery looks much better now than 10 years ago, when it was just a locust tree grove with an almost impenetrable undergrowth. It now has a trust established by the late Ms Jeanette Covert nee Schneider. However the income from the trust can just barely maintains it's present state. Someday. Maybe we can build a fence someday.
