        Mark,

        Thank you for your inquiry - sorry to be so long in responding. In
        August, members of our group met in Columbus, GA, and adopted a Master
        Plan. The next step is to have a formal archaeological survey conducted
        - estimated to cost about $14,000 - hopefully this winter. I had
        planned on meeting early this month with officials from the Georgia
        Power Company (the property owners) and from the City (the cemetery is
        now bounded by the River Walk, which is part of the city parks
        department) to discuss our plans and seek some financial help, but I
        have not been able to schedule a time to go.

        I am interested to know more about the type of work you do. With respect
        to the Clapp's Factory Cemetery, there is not a lot to restore (from the
        looks of things). There is only one grave that is still marked, out of
        an estimated 400-500. We are hoping that the survey will turn up at
        least a few markers that have sunk down and been covered over. During a
        clean-up event at the site in the spring of 2003, we did detect in a
        couple of spots brick rows that probably outlined graves or lots; one
        account mentions handmade bricks used for this purpose at the cemetery.
        It has been reported to us by local residents that evidence of the
        cemetery was purposely destroyed by persons acting on behalf of the
        property owner - but, of course, we can't prove this.

        I will be glad to send further information about the cemetery and our
        plans, if you would care to see it. Thanks again for your interest,

          Hi John,

          Thanks for the update. Interesting project that you are involved in.

          I am a professional cemetery restorer. I restore stones of various types
          and reset pioneer cemeteries as they originally would have be laid out.
          Last year I restored 1,089 stones. This year I am over 1500 stones with
          about 300 more to go. I am already about 70% booked for 2005 and 2006.
          It's a great job, a great thing to do and I love it..it's not easy though.

          Anyway, keep in touch..and glad to hear you are keeping the memory of those
          gone on before us alive.
