I was told seven years ago, last month, to do the following:
"Drive off the main road; drive through the open field; drive
through the crop field; then, avoiding getting stuck on the
muddy dirt path, drive in between the hog farm; avoiding the
ruts in the road. You will then come to a small cemetery on
Another area where I could have been of assistance was to inform the grave diggers as to where to place any leftover dirt from the grave hole. As the images below indicate, excess dirt was placed precariously next to an older grave. In time, due to future weather conditions, this extra dirt, if not removed, will easily cover the older grave marker.
Also, notice how the newest grave is not properly marked; not even with a traditional "temporary" grave marker. In time, hopefully, a headstone will be placed on this grave. If not, however, it too will become one of the 40% of unmarked graves within the Brick Mill Cemetery.
I will close this post by showing the entrance to the historic Brick Mill Cemetery as it appears during the first week of February 2014. Please note that since these images another heavier snow storm left the path with over seven inches of wet snow. In time, this snow, as it melts, will cause the ground to be even softer and less passable.
