TOMBSTONE Photos: Photograph Andrew County Tombstone Project (PACT)
From Monica and volunteers:

"The picture is of Woodcock Cemetery, and shows how our volunteers aren't just photographing, but are actually finding the tombstones sometimes. In the picture you can see three stones which have been literally dug up, and some of the holes they came from, plus the shovel. I would like to show people how dedicated our volunteers are, and how much exciting information is going to be available as a result. Woodcock was an uncatalogued cemetery, and we have found 23 legible stones, representing over 25 people."
