My brothers and I have been restoring the old Andrews Homestead Cemetery located off Hart Lane at Prosperity.  The site is located on Plum Creek Land Dev. land.   I have pictures of the way it was when we found it and progress of the restoration to date.   I am the 2nd great grandson of Thomas Andrews who is buried at the old homestead site.

These pictures were taken about a year ago.  So far we have been doing the work with money donated by our Andrews family.  What we have done so far has not cost that much.  We are now getting ready to do some type of fencing or border of the area and a sign.  This is what I am now trying to raise money for, as these are the most expensive items.  We are making a tombstone for one of the graves.  My brother and I are doing that ourselves.    - Shawn
