Pictures: As of February 2012, I have only visited this cemetery once to get GPS location reading, and take a couple of quick overview pictures. I hope to some day re-visit this cemetery to take pictures of all the stones, and of course when I do - I will try to share them on this site.

A friend of mine and myself went to Bethel-Harris Cemetery Last summer and reset and/or repaired 20 grave stones and we have 4 or 5 bigger ones we are planning to reset this summer. I have taken picture of all the grave stones there if you would want me to upload them to your website. This might save you a trip.
