The Work Has Started On Jordanville Cemetery

We went to Jordanville Cemetery on Sunday because we had heard that they were working on it. This is what greeted us. This hill is something to climb, let me tell you!
Right away I noticed some missing trees and roads that weren't there before.

The grave stones are still piled up around the trees, though some of the trees they are piled around are cut down now.

They found several other grave stones up in the woods that no one knew about. I wish they were a little more respectful toward them though. I can't imagine how they are going to put it all back together. I am sure they know what they are doing but it seems like a huge task.

Here is the little bulldozer they have up there, dragging down trees from the woods that they cut down. It still seems so lonely up there.

Some of the stones are in amazing shape for being 200 years old. I am happy that they are fixing this historic old cemetery. Now, if I could just get them to look at the little German Cemetery right there in Lisbon on Chestnut Street.......
