George Harper Cemetery

I took my father Lewis G Harper up to the George Harper Cemetery in May of 1992 and I have a photo of him standing at the grave marker of George Allen Harper and his wife Amelia Kidd.  I tried to take my wife to visit the grave site a couple years ago but there was a gate up with a no trespassing sign.  This  cemetery is approximately .9 miles up Cotton Tree on  the left side  of the road off of RT 119.  Would you know who owns the property at the bottom of the hill where there is a house?  The road to the cemetery goes up the hill near the gate.
I would love to go visit it again.  I would have to ride my 4-wheeler up the hill because I am unable to walk it due to medical issues.  The cemetery is approximately .6 miles up the hill.

Also, weather permitting I am going to try a go to the meeting on Thursday 16 Nov. if I will not be interrupting the meeting.
