We traveled south again and passed a crew working on clearing the power lines for any overhanging trees. This was about the 5th time we had passed them and I know they thought we were either out of our minds or trying to find a house to break into.
Well, we found the first cemetery and it was very well kept; was fenced; and covered about 3 acres.
The first name I saw on a tombstone was Nelson and thought this is the correct cemetery. Although Nancy Nelson’s married name was Duke, I thought maybe she and Littleton were buried near to the Nelson family plot. However, no such luck.
We traversed the whole cemetery and there were no Dukes or any more Nelsons.
The wind was really blowing with gusts of 20 miles an hour. My hat was blown off several times.
We finally decided to go to the second cemetery in the area.
