Morris Shepherd recalls Stephen White Cemetery

About: Query: Where is Stephen White Cemetery?

I think this is the same cemetery that I visited 6-8 years ago. It has one of my White relatives who was a Revolutionary War Vet. It is 4-5 miles out 704, on top of a very large hill.

It was a cow pasture and was not fenced off. It was full of trees where the cows spent most of the time out of the sun.

All the stones except one, which had a tree growing around it, were knocked over and covered with mud and cow dung. I was only able to find one stone that I dug out of the dung.

I asked several persons and organizations around Columbia to help clean up and secure the cemetery, but got no positive feed-back from anyone!

Please let me know if anyone else has had better luck than I. It is a shame that the cemetery of our dead heros was allowed to deteriorate and be desecrated as this one has.

s/Morris Shepherd
