Bull Pine Tree Service recently removed several trees from the cemetery at Sweat Morin Homestead, the latest step in the ongoing refurbishment of the historic property. The trees were endangering the gravestones and granite walls. In the spring, members of the Friends of Oakdale Cemetery will clean and adjust the stones. A new replica gate will be made to replace the one that is missing. The cemetery contains about 14 graves, including Captain Benjamin Sweat, son of Moses Sweat, along with his wives, their children, and one of Moses’ daughters.
