Lee Cemetery, Just Down The Road From Scenic Vista Parki

I visited Scenic Vista Park yesterday to get a rough idea of what needs to be started on for the Ghost Walk on May 25.  Right before you reach the park entrance, you will find this little cemetery beside the road. 

 It is called Lee Cemetery, named after William Lee, who was a veteran of the Revolutionary War.  I would like to know a little more about them, including the story as to why they both died in 1828.  
 I liked the way the shadows were falling across the ground and stones so  took a lot of pictures of the area.  The picture up top is very creepy to me. Besides Lee, there are a lot of Ketchums buried here, too.

 This little stone sits by itself, the final resting place for little Willie, who was only 7 months old when he died in 1861.  I have not been to this little cemetery in several years.  The last time I was here, I was with my mom.  
500 feet down the road and you will find the entrance to Scenic Vista Park on the right.  We will be going past here a lot in the two months and I am sure we will be investigating this little cemetery!
