Letter No. 149 | September 22, 1999
My wife and I often used to go to Ebensburg on the back road past Buelah. Before the monument was placed there, we walked up to the cemetery. She says she remembers one gravestone that had the year 1702 on it, but she did not know if that was the date of birth or not. Many of the markers were badly worn and many could not be seen because of the overgrowth of grass, weeds and vines.
Just above the path to the cemetery was a nice spring where we often stopped to get a drink, but after the Cottage was built the water was contaminated.
There was a house near the monument and the sad part was that surrounding the monument and the house were many junked cars.
