Interesting person, this Sybil Hosmer Spear (right), it seems that he lived backward. :)

Greetings Polytropos, I saw that the last two numbers had fallen off but could only make out some time in the 60's as her death. The cemetery was very interesting. I had not visited there for some 30 years, but it hasn't changed much. I think not many people know it is there, and that is probably a good thing.

But as far as I can see there are no walls around the cemetery. There is nothing else that superfluously than a wall around a cemetery; those who are outside don't want to be inside and those who are inside can't go outside. ;)

Greetings Polytropos, This set of markers was on a raised platform, walls made of native granite. The cemetery seemed to be divided into three sections, each with a gate with a symbol on the arch (one was three interlocked elongated loops). Inside each area there were many family plots that had iron fences, wood fences, stone fences or just raised platforms. Quite a place.
