I visit this cemetery every year. John's stone is broken and worn out, so I purchased a new stone in 2011. I always believed his parents were buried in the next spot over, and when I probed, I did get steady resistance about 2.5' down the size of two coffins, so I purchased a stone for my ggg-grandparents in 2011 (with the blessing of the cemetery caretaker). Long time for a coffin to last, but the soil is all sand and at the top of a huge hill, so they would last longer. The depression in front of John's grave only happened about 5 years ago.
