I Saw The Marker

The marker is easy to see and clear.The story on it is: The unmarked graves here were supposedly moved in the past to the East Canaan cemetery across the road(not confirmed),and supposedly the head stones are in the woods behind the church there. Investigation into reviewing the the "Book of Rememberances" to follow up on. Still it is said that the remains of those first buried here,may still be there?
