Anderson Cemetery 2

Martin V Anderson

From the Jacksonburg Post Office, Rt 20 go 1.3 miles, turn left, 0.1 mile make sharp right turn up hill.  Go 0.1 mile and stop, cemetery is in Briars & Weeds on the right.  This cemetery is in very bad shape.  No stones are standing.  There may be more stones I couldn’t find, most of these were buried with only a corner showing.  There is evidence of unmarked graves, I saw several fieldstones.

There is a large base, but no stone found. 

There is evidence of a grave near Martin’s with a footstone that reads Father.

   At one time there was a fence around it, but it is no longer up and animals have been through the cemetery.  The footstone VMA, I thought might belong to Martin, but it located a few feet to the left of the Headstone.  I was told that years ago this land belonged to the Anderson’s.  The property owner told me he didn’t think anyone had been to the cemetery in about 50 years.
