There are mysteries in every section of the cemetery and people whose stories would be exciting to know. We have a tombstone with Susan E. Smith’s name on it and no dates. The tombstone looks very old and is within a curbing that has other tombstones in it with long ago dates. Maybe she is still alive or went to live with children and is buried elsewhere. Then we have J. T. Bay who was born in 1862 but only has a 19?? for a death date. John Bay fought in the Mexican War. Each person has a story.
