Thirty years later

Revisiting Greer Cemetery again in 2009, there are a few changes thanks to the Wingo Homemakers Club's restoration efforts around 1990. Stones were repaired and reset, but the cemetery is essentially as it was the first time I saw it in 1979.

The grave of Elizabeth Howard is unchanged.

My ggg grandfather Wingo's stone which has been repaired and reset, is now joined by ggg grandmother Ann Yancey Beadles Wingo's stone previously buried under a layer of dirt and vines before the restoration.

Sadly, the stone of Margaret Beadles is no longer standing and is too degraded to read but other stones are now accessible.

And the restoration included a monument with the cemetery's name and concrete benches for visitors.
