Edmund Ruffin’s Grave Site

Edmund Ruffin Grave SiteTuesday July 18,2017
Members of the Edmund Ruffin Fire Eaters Graves & Monuments Committee came together this morning to remove a fallen tree limb from Edmund Ruffin’s grave site. There was no damage to the fence however, Edmund Ruffin’s headstone was damaged, but can be repaired. We reset Mr. Ruffin’s marker so as to prevent further damage. We hope to repair it soon. We also set another headstone that was atilt caused by the fallen tree limb. We mowed and trimmed the grass. Thank you Tim Tuck, Charles Martin, Bill Cuneo, and Herb Carver for volunteering to join me in preserving and maintaining this historic landmark.
