      Graves - Four graves, two marked by gravestones, one with an older stone in place and one older stone broken off but replaced by a new memorial stone placed by the Atwater descendants. Two other graves are clearly of children and marked at each end by fieldstones and at the head by a shrub; one grave is 5 1/2 ft long and the other is 3 1/2 ft long.
