An anonymous donor has graciously offered to help us get some of the damaged, shifting or sinking stones repaired and reset. Last week Kline Memorials began this work. Here are some before and after photos.

If you would like to contribute for a specific stone or for general upkeep and maintenance, please visit the Help the Cemetery page.

In these, there is a deep hole to the left of the center stone, and the earth is rising around the feet of the 2 right stones. Now the hole is filled and the stones are reset and leveled.

This one was knocked off its base, either by vandals or perhaps in the 2011 earthquake, and it has been reset.

This was settling and leaning, is now reset with a proper foundation.

Another knocked off its foundation and reset. The Fredericksburg Baptist Church contributed for this repair, as Mrs. Euliss was a long-time member.

This unique stone was leaning precariously, and if it had tipped it surely would have broken. Now it is straight and has a proper foundation.
