ELK GARDEN CEMETERY
Updated Transcription 3-15-2002 by Patti McDonald (In Blue)

Part of this cemetery is in a terrible condition. It is overcome with weeds, thorns and stickers. I tried to get as many of the stones and as much information from them as possible, but I was getting "Pretty Tored Up" from the stickers and thorns - some stones I just couldn't get to. Also, many of the stones are broken and very hard to decipher.
The people who live around the cemetery told me it is owned by the Keyser Catholic Church. One man, Mr Marple has taken tremendous effort in cleaning what is cleared - but said it has exhausted him. He said that a Mr Delileo from Elk Garden has stated that he is willing to donate the costs of cleaning it up, and they are working on that process now.
When they get it cleaned up, I'll go back and complete the cemetery.
