This week Benn Franklin’s headstone was cleaned. After cleaning holes were drilled for reinforcement rods and the 2 pieces for the headstone were epoxied together. Once the epoxy was dry I then used a mortar mix to fill in the gaps that were there due to destruction and weathering.

Secondly Nancy Ellen McClure’s headstone was cleaned and then reinforced with rods and epoxied to secure the 2 pieces f the headstone. After the epoxy dried a mortar mix was added to fill in the cracks and weathered/worn areas.

This is a picture of Benn Franklin’s Grave showing the cement border that was covered by several inches of soil. the cement border was badly damaged and was determined that repair of the border would be too extensive at this time and may be too intrusive into the grave.
