At this inappropriate place, without note or comment, fence or headstone, lie interred the ancestors of some who hear me today.

These graves, since they were uncared for, and hidden in the forest, were probably never moved along with the other cemeteries in the Kinzua Valley, and they are no doubt under water now.
