Dennis Whittaker & Janet M. Nash restored this cemetery (2003). Headstones and monuments, were reset, broken and cracked headstones were repaired. This project took started in the spring and was not completed until late fall. Janet M. Nash was also the fund raiser for this project, and helped Dennis Whittaker with monument repair, clean up of cemetery, recording inscriptions, and made a map of headstone location.  Mike Munch helped lift some of the heavy monuments.  James Weaver helped remove debris and help at some of the finishing touches needed after restoring the cemetery. Donations of money and materials for restoring the cemetery were made by Janet M. Nash, Florence Starr, Elaine Crispell Genung, Anna Hines, Cindy Whittaker, Duree Evans and JanMarie.
A thank you to all of the people that bought books from JanMarie, all profit went to the Cemetery Clean Up Project.
Thank you Barry Goodrich for making a new gate for the cemetery.
Thank you Greg Harrington for keeping the cemetery mowed for many years.  The Town of Caroline is know taking care of hiring the mowing done 3 times a year.
Elmer Lockwood recorded the headstone inscriptions of this cemetery in the year of 1960. I have used his records as a reference when the headstone could not be read or found. Mr. Lockwood did not record all headstone inscriptions of this cemetery. Dora Pope Worden also recorded headstone inscriptions of this cemetery in the 1920's, but she missed some of the burials too.  By walking in this cemetery, it is clear there are still many unmarked graves. This cemetery record was recorded from the headstone inscriptions on June 13, 2001 - by JanMarie & Cathy Knauff, and updated in the summer of 2003 while the cemetery was being restored. More burials which are unmarked were added from The Town of Caroline death and burial records for the years of 1914-1958.
Research was done by Janet M. Nash.

Thank you Stacey Foote for donating your Leonard, Reed, Burnett, Quick and Sullivan headstone photos.

You are our visitor since November 21, 1998.
