When this cemetery was finally relocated cattle were grazing over the graves and the headstones were stacked up against the fence to keep the cattle from destroying them. The headstone of Mark Cole was moved and placed beside Dorcas Hall Cole at Mt Horeb and it was stolen from there at a later date.
