Bocock-Hobaugh Cemetery
July 2000
By Carla Hobaugh Smith


I was hoping this stone said Priscilla, for Priscilla Hobaugh. Yet, I think it is just wishful thinking.
I took all of these pictures for two reasons. The first was to show the ground cover that was all over the area. It really helped us to understand where the original cemetery might have been. The other reason was to show you how many stones were just randomly placed by trees and seemingly placed aside. It was truly sad. I still can't believe that a cemetery could be left in this type of condition.
This picture was a mistake, but then the more I think about it really helps to shed some darkness on the true existence of this sacred ground. This happens to be my favorite picture of the cemetery.
