Haines Cemetery, Early Days

Belva recently sent us the picture below of the Early Days of the Haines Cemetery.  This was taken in 1937 before the Cemetery Association was formed.  For those of you who have never been to the area, it was just a barren hill top with no trees or grass.  I can't say I was ever there as a child, but I do remember when grandfather passed, dad said he would not be buried there.  As Belva said it was pretty bad and she worried she might be buried there, now she has a plot.  The years and a good Cemetery Association has changed the description.

Funeral of Mary Davidson, Bill Maxwell with cane and her son Bob Davidson

When compared to the present photo you can see there is quite a difference.  If you have photos of the Haines Cemetery you would like to add, please use our Comment Form
