Photo by SkakelNoted as being in an old orchard on a two acre farm, it is thought that this is the location.
Locals know it as an old burial ground.
We found 9 probably burials here. 3 in one spot. 3 in another spot near by. And back of those three individuals.
There could well be more.
Here I photo Les in the middle of the burial area while the truck sits on the road.

We caution that this was found by dowsing but local history and other information place burials quite likely here.
Here Les Stands in the middle of the burial area while I take a photograph from the road.

Photo by SkakelUnfortunately lighting only allowed ONE angle here and that cast shadows. However, note the extremely heavy old base on top of the large old monument broken off at the bottom. Since that monument was "Flipped upside down" we could not view the text on it. There may well be other monuments under it. However, since the base on top weighed probably 100 kgs, we could not slide it off to get a better view of the monument(s?) below.
