Working At The Freeney - Hearn Cemetery

A couple of us from the Delmar Historical and Arts Society went out to the Freeney - Hearn cemetery west of town to continue our work of cleaning it up.  We have not been out there for a month so first order of business was weedwacking so we could find the cemetery again.
After the weeding we worked on shoveling the excess dirt out of the cemetery.  Our theory is when the cemetery was overgrown in weeds, trees and bushes when the wind blew it picked up sand and dirt from the fields around the cemetery and the weeds etc captured the sand giving the cemetery about a 6 inch build up to it.   Slow going but we will eventually get it clean.
