This cemetery is located on
Blythe Island off of Hillery Trace.
There are three people buried in this cemetery. In talking to a
family member and the owners of the property there are supposedly four graves.
One is an infant's grave with no marker. The graves were moved once and
relocated on the property thus losing the location of the fourth grave.
Originally, William Henry Lipthratt owned this property and lived there
with his family. The house burned down and was rebuilt. Nothing
remains of the original home. William also farmed on the land.
His first wife, Mary, is buried here along with their daughter Carrie.
William remarried after his wife died. When he died, his widow sold
the land and moved away. Carrie lived with her brother until finally being
put in a home as she was mentally retarded and unable to care for herself.
When Carrie died, she was buried in the family cemetery with her parents.
No one knows who the infant was or if there really was a fourth grave.
Cemetery was surveyed in 2002, which is when the photos were taken.
Due to recent "theft" of my photos being uploaded to Find-A-Grave, I have
had to add copyrights across the tombstone photos (not sure why I didn't have
these photos copy-protected already since the cemetery overall shots are) --Amy
