The large angel monument marks the graves of Judge Peete and Roberta Somervill. The six infant grave markers to the right of it are his brothers and sisters, three dying at birth and 3 dying very young. Another brother was Eugene Hart, Bob's grandfather, who lived 49 years...from 1858 to 1907 and is buried in Covington.. He was killed accidently while attempting to intervene in an altercation betweet his friend, James Rutherford and James' wife. Eugene had served as county clerk of Tipton County.
In September of 1994 vandalism occured and many of the markers were knocked down by auto and broken.. The broken pieces have since been placed on concrete slabs and bonded together, as you can observe in the pictures. Also measures have been taken to cause it to be very difficult to drive onto the property.
some of the pictures in this slide show were taken this past Monday, others are from previous years visits.
