We now have available 'UNKNOWN' markers hand carved from Indiana
Limestone to place at unmarked grave depressions so these graves can be
leveled and seeded without losing sight of the grave.
Replacement tablet-style markers can be obtained, cut from Indiana
Limestone and hand carved in the 19th Century styles by Casey

We are nearly booked for 2014 but have a few slots available and are

We use only water and specialty chemicals designed for masonry
preservation for all of our cleaning needs. Power tools are never used to clean historic
headstones as they damage the stone.
All monuments are reset to the original position. Natural Hydraulic
Lime mortars and appropriate epoxies are used. We never use Portland
cement mortars for resetting.
We make repairs using historic preservation mortars and appropriate
epoxies. A lime mortar infill is used to cover fractures and cracks.
Sugaring (deteriorating) marble generally should not be cleaned or
repaired. In these cases we use a stone consolidation
treatment to bind and strengthen the remaining original material before
additional work is started.
