Hi Jennifer - You're very welcome.

I thought I might mention there are unmarked graves at Double Butte. My Great Grandmother, Clara Jane Cady PRITCHETT has a marker there and her husband James Decalne PRITCHETT is allegedly buried there as well, but the Sexton has no record of his burial in Double Butte. The area surrounding my Great Grandmother's grave is mostly void and unpopulated of marked graves and he may actually be buried very near her. For now it's a mystery as to his whereabouts.

Perhaps one day they'll have some sort of imaging machine that can view what's beneath the surface up to, say a depth of 10 feet. If invented, I would think cemeteries would rush to acquire such equipment so they can maximize burial space. Time will tell............

Take care.
