Attn: Matkin Family Members

  Mr. Yeager has done extensive repairs, the cost of which was paid out of his own pocket. See "Before"
photographs below.  He took what footstone markers there were and cemented them in front of their
respective markers.  They were scattered all about.  He also built frames and replaced missing and
broken base footings.  All together he used 9 bags of cement and 1/2 bag of mortar, not to mention a lot of time
and hard work!   He would be grateful for any contributions toward reimbursement you can make.
