Presbyterians Relocate Tombstones



Palmer Construction workers Steve Oakman, left, and Tom Lynch set one of 12 19th-century tombstones at a new location Tuesday in McConnellsburg United Presbyterian Church Cemetery at South Second and West Maple streets. The tombstones and the graves they mark have been moved to accomodate a shaft for a platform lift to make the church sanctuary basement handicapped accessible.
