      Mary Hedges Reiner visited the cemetery in November 1950 when it was known as the Graham Cemetery. Two Flemingsburg High School boys went with her to hunt for headstones and they found them completely covered with earth. She took photographs of the two stones.

  • Notes 
    • MHR note: Levi used to have family worship at their home and he loved to sing. He sat on his porch the evening before his death and watched the sun set, and sang his favorite song:

      The day is past and gone,
      The evening shades appear:
      Oh, may we all remember well
      The night of death draws near.

      We lay our garments by,
      Upon our bed to rest.
      So death may soon disrobe us all
      Of what we now possess.

      He was taken suddenly in the night by an attack of acute indigestion and was gone.
    • MHR note: Levi Hedges worked as a blacksmith, tanner, carpenter, and of course, farmed also.
