One headstone resting near cut tree stumps inside the Hollingsworth Cemetery. The two base stones that we know about are buried. One of them has been uncovered, although it hasn't been moved yet. Why? It is stuck between two tree stumps! This will take some finesse and muscle power to get it out so it can be reset on a level. The other one will require the same work.
