Harker's Corners Cemetery

 Special thanks to Steve Slaughter, Al & Carole Martin, and Linda T.



The cemetery has one Civil War and one WWII vet and at least 5 - 18th century births. 
The most recent burial was 2005. The scenic cemetery is mowed.
But many headstones are in need of attention with several stones nearly buried.
