Further Information and Sources
The stone was embraced by a nearby tree, which had grown around it, with the inscription facing the tree trunk and thus obscuring the view. Information as to who the stone belongs, death date etc. to was taken from Long’s 1937 listing.
On the evening of 10 September 2016 in the midst of a severe windstorm, the top of the maple tree that was engulfing Margaret Cook’s marker toppled.
There was some damage to the iron picket fence surrounding Robert Hall’s nearby gravesite which has since been repaired. Otherwise the grave yard and church escaped relatively unscathed, somewhat remarkable considering the size off the tree. With the cleanup and the careful removal of the tree trunk,, the grave marker is now visible – see the image below.
