In 1991, Roland Junkins reported: "The bottom rail is under earth. The gate is on its original hinges. The only thing missing is the latch. I'm going to clean the two big stones and get the lichens off. The Elijah stone is covered. I'm going to restore the lovely fence around the cemetery."

On August 14, 1991, Karl and Joanne Junkins surveyed and recorded the graves in this burial ground. Their survey was published in JFA Newsletter no. 8, Summer 1993.


One of Roland Junkins' first projects in 1993 was the repair of the fence. The burial ground actually is two sections side by side, each section being approximately 25' by 25'. The metal fence around the left hand portion of the ground had several sections missing and had been in bad conditions for many years. Most of the remaining pipe was rusting away and about to crumble. Roland reported that it would cost $770 in materials and labor to replace the fence. The remaining sections of the old fence and the cement footings would need to be dug out of the ground first. Then, new footings and a new fence and gate erected. There was only $100 in the Burial Ground Fund, so it was decided to borrow the additional $670 from the Association's general fund.
