Cemetery is in a fenced in area in the woods at the edge of a pasture. The fence is in bad shape. I cut the sapling trees and cleaned the cemetery 2001. I mow the cemetery several times each summer. I reset the leaning stones in 2003 and set a flagpole. My gr gr gr grandfather Madison Keck is buried in the cemetery. He is a veteran of the Civil War and it is important to me this cemetery be maintained
