      In March 1984, Wade Hadley recorded 4 grave markers and noted about 6 graves marked with field stones. By 1988, Wade Hadley reported that some of the stones had been removed. JC Bray, Tommy Emerson and Jim and Bev Wiggins visited the site in 2008 and found no evidence of the Paschal stones, but did find the James Bray stone and several other partially legible stones. The site was visited by Jane and Alan Mann and Jim and Bev Wiggins in February 2012 and all legible or partially legible stones were photographed.
