Bobby Graves rolls up the electric fence that ran along the top of the cemetery fence.  This was used to keep out the cattle that grazed in this area at one time.  This will not be replaced since the area is now a subdivision.

George appears to pull the tractor.  For posts in the ground so deep that they could not be pulled out by hand, George placed two log chains around the post.  Then while Owen drives the tractor to pull out the post, George holds the chains out of the way of the tractor tires.

Donna Ferrell probes for grave
Donna Ferrell probes for grave
Donna Ferrell probes for the graves of James Monroe Gleaves and his wife Mary Alice Sanders.  Their names are included on old lists for this cemetery but no tombstone can be found for them.  (They were buried in 1940 and 1933.) All of their immediate family is buried on the same row in this cemetery.  At the very beginning of this row there appears to be the base of a double monument.  Since they could not be found in any other local cemetery and there was no record of their removal, a request was made to Donna Ferrell, president of the West Wilson County Historical Society in Mt. Juliet, TN to probe for these two graves.  Donna believes from her probing that the graves are still there.  The couple's descendants will be contacted to see if they would like to place a monument there.
