Engle/Lowry Farm Graveyard

These photos were given to me by cousin Cherise from Utah. Fortunately she visited the site shortly after its clean up by the local Salisbury Historical Society in 1998. The graveyard is located on the brow of the hill overlooking the old Clement farm from the South. She also recorded the inscriptions on the stones that were legible. It is not obvious that Clement ever had anything but a simple field stone but the DAR placed a marker there sometime in the last 50 years.
