Thank you for speaking with me just now about the possibility of visiting the Lindsay Graves on your parents property.  Please have your dad call me when convenient at my home phone listed below.  We would like to visit the graves tomorrow after church if that is convenient with you all.

My relations to the Lindsays there are detailed on my webpage dedicated to it:

Thanks again,

Subject: Tomorrow 

I overheard my dad discussing tomorrow with you over the phone. I
probably will not be here because I have a trip planned tomorrow to go
to Macon. A few things to know about the graveyard are that there a
lot of sinkholes and a kudzu type vines growing in it. I believe there
is only one headstone, and last time I rode past the graveyard it had
been knocked off by something, possibly by the concrete pillar it was
resting on being disturbed because of a sinkhole. But I don't know, I
have never been inside the graveyard before.

 It is just a small area 50 feet long by 30 feet wide, and on one side
of the stone wall it is partially falling apart. That's the best way I
can think of to explain it. The graveyard is on top of a hill, and at
the bottom of it is Tobler Creek, which starts behind Davis-Cooper
Ford in Barnesville, and winds its way through eastern Upson County
and eventually makes its way to the Flint River.

If I don't see you tomorrow hopefully I will have the chance to meet
you one day.
