A grave is opened. This site is in need of protection. It was given by the Ziccardi family, who owned a farm in the area.
My great grandparents are buried there, but there are no stones for them as they have been stolen or broken. Within the past 6 months, many wonderful ceramic pictures have been removed from the stones, a mausoleum was broken into, a house is being built to the side and cement blocks are thrown on the cemetery fence and much damage has been done. .

The markers for my geat grandparents' graves have been found. One grave is so overgrown with a sprawling bush that the metal cross marking the grave was not seen before.
Update 2 - 17 April, 2002
Someone is beginning to pay attention to this cemetery. The cement blocks are stacked neatly a few feet away from the cemetery fence, although the wire bad condition fence is in . There is still garbage/debris thrown in the back and lots of clean up to do, but it looks better.
Update 3 - 02 August, 2002
The garbage has been removed. A new wire fence is up across the back. Alas, it is a farm fence and not the more ornate one that was there. Many pictures have been restored and the broken pieces are finding their way back to the original stones. The place is mowed and is greatly improved! There's much to do, but I am encouraged. Thank you, Saving Graves.
