The house itself is falling apart rapidly. Birds live inside. The wood is bending, busting and bowing inside and out. Sunlight pours through many slits in the old wooden walls.

In the early 1900’s and generally any time before that, death at a young age was fairly common. This grave site resides less than a quarter of a mile from the house in a small thicket of trees. A tranquil and serene setting with a nearby pond and a large corn field all around.
