NOTE: We went out to survey Mace Cemetery because it had been cleaned off, and I don't think anyone has been out there since the first survey in the 50's. There is a large slab of cement that is broken off from one grave of John Mace. It was on top of a bricked grave so I don't know how it was broken from up on the bricks.
