Elijah Freeney Cemetery Cleanup


On a very windy day, some members of the Delmar Historical and Arts Society yesterday worked on the cleanup of the Elijah Freeney cemetery west of Delmar.

Happily OSHA was not there to observe our work habits.

The cemetery was not in as bad shape as others because the sod farm owners, where the cemetry is located, have tried to cut the larger trees down. A big thanks to them. We did try to remove the stumps. In a poor pun, Ed Ferro said we were digging out the family tree.

Chuck Swift, noted taphophile (“taph” from the Greek for tomb and “philia” meaning an inordinate fondness), volunteered to come down from Laurel and help us.

More work is to be done.
