Richmond Cemetery rdoo3 - Gardner-Sisson Lot

This cemetery is located on Gardner Road on the Exeter/Richmond town line. At this cemetery we clipped the grass around the headstones, washed off the headstones with water to be able to read them better and cleared the ground of sticks and branches; as well as transcribed the inscriptions from the stones.
