This page is to honor those dedicated individuals who have shown a real concern & care for tombstone & cemetery preservation. These wonderful individuals have dedicated their time & monies over the years to ensure the preservation of our history. This type of work can be a very time consuming task of research & then physically searching. These people are the Sherlock Holms & Indiana Joneses of our preservation efforts & we wish to say THANK YOU.

Even though this work is mainly centered on one specific cemetery’s restoration, we feel through the sheer amount of work being done, that it qualifies Andy Harpole & his group as up & coming conservators. Andy & his folks have taken professional cemetery conservator training from Jonathan Appell & continue to gain more knowledge every season.
