Bunker Graveyard Damage

Mary Bunker Peterson, Graveyard Committee Chair, visited the Durham site of the Bunker Graveyard this week, and found some damage.  In an e-mail, she said:

“I think this was storm damage. I don’t see evidence of vandalism. In fact, someone was kind enough to prop the gate up against the granite post.
“I think it’s possible that in one case a very large limb came down and broke the fence. That’s why I took a picture of the limb lying on the side. At the other end of the graveyard, the fencing is pulling out because the granite post in the corner continue to lean more and more as the ground shifts. You can also see this in the picture of that section.
“The only possible ‘vandalism’ I saw was that a chunk of the granite post by the big limb is missing. It seems to have been almost square and perhaps someone took it. At least I couldn’t find it and I looked all around the area. So that post cannot be repaired with the missing piece, but maybe some other way.”
