As of December 2003,
Bequeath C
was full of weeds and brush,
with many stones
apparently toppled & broken
by vandals.

About February 2004,
someone burned off the cemetery
revealing the hidden tombstones.

Mr. Gregory Preston of
Salt Lake City, Utah
funded a project to have TCGHS
photograph all existing stones
and display them for future researchers
on this website

Mr. Preston
has several ancestors buried
in Bequeath Cemetery
