GRACE CHURCH CEMETERY

     The Grace Church Cemetery was surveyed on July 22, 2000 by Sharon Lee Nowery and Claude Ridings. The church is located on Rocky Ford Road near the intersection with Genito Road. Most of the cemetery is enclosed within a brick wall at the rear and side of the church. There are unmarked graves and several graves marked only with stones.

     The cemetery was re-surveyed on October 11, 2007 by Raymond Butcher and the tombstones and church were photographed.

Aged
48 years and 8 months
Gallantly Leading
His command and with
His last breath

"Don't Turn Your Backs to the Enemy."

however, several headstones which are not readable and other graves which are
completely un-marked.
