guadalupe cemetery

is on private ranch land and closed to the public. Probably less than a dozen tombstones. We have been unable to gain entrance to this historic old church and cemetery to survey. This photo was taken in the 1950s when it was open and we were not yet interested in tombstone inscriptions. Harold Kilmer
