Richmond Cemetery rd004 - Wawaloam campground 

      This cemetery is located on the property of Wawaloam Campground. It is well maintained by the groundskeepers there and kept in good condition. We found out that one of the people buried there, Job Hoxsie, owned the land where both of us happen to live on.                                               

 

           Two of the stones in the cemetery, belonging to Varnum Hoxsie and Marther Hoxsie, were broken in half. One of the groundskeepers who had experience with cemetery restoration tried to repair Varnum Hoxsie's stone, but the attempt was unsuccessful because the stone broke again along the same crack.

Who died March 2, 1843

In the 29th year of her age

One night while in musing these words came with power

O do not be troubled, nor doubt anymore

Believe thou in God, believe also in me.

In the house of my father are mansions for thee

Tis the voice of my savior, my soul then replied

For me he hath suffered, for me he hath died

The blood of his words while he hung on the tree

He has purchased redemption & pardoned for me.
