  1. I was there just this week to visit the grave of my great-great grandfather, Sidney C. Harper. I found that the 2011 wildfire had burned down almost all of the trees in the area and had destroyed the wooden part of the "tabernacle." So sad. Additionally, vandals had broken many (but not all) of the tombstones in half. I was so relieved that my great-great grandfather's stone was intact and still upright.
