A conditions assessment was made for each grave marker (Table 34). Weathering has
impacted a small number of markers and is a constant challenge in all cemeteries. An
overwhelming majority (n=115, 85%) of markers are maintained, followed by weathered
markers (n=13, 10%), broken (n=2, 1.5%), repaired (n=2, 1.5%), and single examples each of
missing, slumped, and weathered/repaired. These data conform to expectations for a formal
church cemetery that is actively maintained. However, markers require at least a minimal level
of maintenance over time to ensure their long-term stability.
