Many of the people that are buried here were very prominent in the in the early beginings of Caldwell Co.
It is a beautiful and well maintained cemetery with roads that wind around to every part of the cemetery.
In the Spring of 2005 two juveniles went through the cemetery and either broke or turned over at least
49 stones.
Those stones are being repaired by Richard P'Pool of Princeton, Ky. Richard has a family and a full time job,
yet finds time to repair damaged or boroken stones. He has never charged for his work on repairing stones.
He is also very active in helping to secure government markers for unmarked veterans graves.

November 8, 2005 UPDATE from Richard

I have finished all of the stones that were vandalized at Cedar Hill. I am now working on some of those that were broken years ago. I have fixed over 30 total. David Sullenger is over the cemetery crew and is doing a wonderful job. They are now leveling graves, plumbing markers, cutting trees, etc. They work up there several days a week. It looks better than it has for years. I have several dozen more that I want to fix, but do not know if the weather will hold out. The epoxy that the Cowser's gave me is excellent. I can now do 3 or 4 a day instead of just 2. It still takes a while to make them look good, but I hope to keep doing them as long as the epoxy holds out.
