Molesworth Cemetery - Can Anyone Take Photos?

I am looking for a kind person who will go to Molesworth Cemetery and take digital photos for me. I've had my request posted for a couple of years now on, but no response so far.

Here is what I know:

The Molesworth family cemetery is on Adams Road (Township Road 303) south of the junction with Poulson-Stewart (Township Road 312). This site is in the northeast 1/4 of section 35, township 11, range 6. The graveyard is 84 feet by 60 feet and was established about 1820.

The inscriptions were read by William Henderson on 10 August 1985 and were published previously in "Our Harrison Heritage" Vol. III, No. 2, Summer 1985.

The inscriptions in MOLESWORTH Cemetery are:

Moles, A
1820, on top; A. Moles, 2nd line; rest of stone unreadable.

Molesworth, James, Age of Death: 71y 7m 8d, Died: 26 Feb 1866.

Molesworth, Elizabeth, Died: 12 --- 18--, Died 1873? (Is this Elizabeth Connell?)

Broken stone, Died: 16 Sep 1831.

It would be absolutely wonderful to see this little cemetery and the headstones of my family. Someone must live nearby. I hope this reaches them.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
