      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.

      Thank you for your inquiry - sorry to be so long in responding.  In <BR>
      August, members of our group met in Columbus, GA, and adopted a Master <BR>
      Plan.  The next step is to have a formal archaeological survey conducted
      - estimated to cost about $14,000 - hopefully this winter.  I had <BR>
      planned on meeting early this month with officials from the Georgia <BR>
      Power Company (the property owners) and from the City (the cemetery is <BR>
      now bounded by the River Walk, which is part of the city parks <BR>
      department) to discuss our plans and seek some financial help, but I <BR>
      have not been able to schedule a time to go.  <BR>
      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 <BR>
      an estimated 400-500.  We are hoping that the survey will turn up at <BR>
      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 <BR>
      couple of spots brick rows that probably outlined graves or lots; one <BR>
      account mentions handmade bricks used for this purpose at the cemetery. <BR>
      It has been reported to us by local residents that evidence of the <BR>
      cemetery was purposely destroyed by persons acting on behalf of the <BR>
      property owner - but, of course, we can't prove this.  <BR>
      I will be glad to send further information about the cemetery and our <BR>
      plans, if you would care to see it.  Thanks again for your interest,<BR>
