Some History of The Richardson Reynolds Cemetery

I understand that Richardson graves were moved to MLC. I do NOT know how the archaeologists did their research ... I do not think they dug up the Reynolds nor the other grave. But Ruth, I think, said the archaeologist said they 'discovered' a second grave ... I do not know which side of the line fence.

The "history" of those two cemeteries would seem to be that the Richardson family and the Reynolds family located on property next to each other (this could be checked in Abstracts). And that a Reynolds married a Richardson. The two families seemed to establish small family cemeteries close to each other, but across the line fence form each other. At some time after MLC was established it is said they Richardsons moved the Richardson graves to MLC.

The Reynolds Cemetery is on the North side of the line fence, the Richardson Cemetery was on the South side of the line fence, on Richardson's farm. As far as we know, just one tombstone remains. But we think the archaeologist said there was at least a second grave there. We have no idea whether any of the Reynolds Cemetery graves are said to have been moved; just that the Richardson cemetery graves have been said to be moved.

I would think that the Richardsons should know something about the Richardson Cemetery.

A GPR was done on this Cemetery (these Cemeteries), when some work was done on the road way?

William & Mary (Reynolds) Richardson are said to have been buried here.

Richardson cemetery -- according to Ruth S, James Reynolds, died 1870, also buried there. His sister Mary (Mrs. Wm. Richardson) lived next door. She was buried in their cemetery, like just across the fence from the Reynolds. But the Richardsons later were "moved" to Maple Leaf Cemetery. We caution that "Moved" had many different meanings back then.
