Haycock Cemetery gets rededicated on Memorial Day
The Haycock Family Cemetery, which is located Haycock Lane in Spring Glen was rededicated on Memorial Day, May 30, 2011. Thirty family members representing the Haycock, Stowell and Buckley families were in attendance. Many had traveled from Arizona, Colorado and Utah. The dedicatory prayer was given by Bryan Haycock, who is a great-grandson of Thomas William and Mary Ann (Brindley) Haycock.
Restoration of the cemetery is a work in progress. Donations are still being made and plans are being fulfilled. Several more graves have been identified, but we are still hoping to find someone who can put us in contact with anyone related to the Edwin T. and Anna Sophia Jones family.
Appreciation goes out to the following for their dedication and support of this amazing project: Kathy Hamaker, with the Carbon County Historical Society, Kurt Vuksinick, with the donation of the weed barrier felt to go underneath the gravel, Nielson Construction for the donation of four additional loads of gravel to be spread on the lower portion of the cemetery, Katelin and Douglas Gumfory for their donation of marble chips that freshened the inside of numerous gravesites, They and Jeri Haycock Stinecipher traveled from Colorado and helped with the spreading our first (but not last) load of gravel (13 tons), Neil and Ora Warren for labor and donation of a lovely arch, Carbon County for helping with weed control, Norman Hansen for his continued support with equipment and labor, and the many generous financial donations that are being made that enable the work to continue. We couldn't do this without all of the your help. Thank you all.
