Sunday Snapshot: Gone But Not Forgotten at Berea Cemetery


Gone but not forgotten, Martha’s headstone is slowly being enveloped by the earth.

In 1857, the Associated Reformed Presbyterians founded the town of Berea in southwestern Franklin County.  Less than three decades later, the settlement followed the railroad to nearby Richmond.
