original_headstone.jpg Old headstone. Smedley's stone is the oldest in Cemetery and it had been broken in three pieces over years, but was repaired by his great-grandson, Roy Gifford, Sheriff of St. Vincent County, about 1960. The stone reads: In Memory Of/Smedley Benedict/Died April 27, 1867/Aged 67 yrs. 1m./Gone but not Forgotten.

new-headstone.jpg New headstone (2009). The old headstone had been repaired with iron bolts and brackets that were rusting away. Also the engraving had almost disappeared with erosion by 2001. The new headstone was purchased and installed in front of the old one by Donald Benedict. It bears the same inscription as the original.
