When Donna Allen walked this cemetery in 2003, she noted, "Cemetery is in bad shape has not been mowed in long time ". We are happy to report that is no longer true!

Eric Petsch is restoring the English Family Cemetery as his Eagle Scout project. Erich has cleaned up the physical cemetery and is in the process of building a new fence around it. He is also researching to assemble as much information as possible about the cemetery and the people buried in it. Click for other photos: Photo 1, Photo 2, Photo 3.

Thank you, Erich for a beautiful job!
