View 1: Along East boundary shared with Jewish Cemetery. No visable alley dividing rows of plots. (See Plat Map below for reference)
View 2: Large wild trees. Burial sites surround by trees and covered by wild shrubery and flowers.
View 3: Cemeteries on left surrounded by wild flowers are hard to maintain.
View 4: Cement borders more visible, but need edging and cleaning. Wild trees growing in alley.
View 5: Wild large trees growing next to headstones. Many headstones toppled by vandals.
View 6: Area pretty much clear of wild growth. Again toppled headstone need to be lifted back in to place.
View 7: Front area cleared enough to maintain grave sites except for forested area to back.
View 8: Alley and plots on both side in fairly good shape. Dense forest may have a number of plots with a burial and missing headstone.
View 9: Similar state as View 9.
View 10: Land is pretty much clear to the south boundary line.
View 11: Property along Tuscola Road. Old cemetery post once support fencing. The area furthest south could eventually be used for parking if no burials are identified in this section.

||Seamans Cemetery is in "Disparate" Shape!
As can be seen in the above photos, nature has claimed nearly all of the southern property (Map Ref.: Area beyond road off Tuscola). For some time we believed their were only a few isolated burials in this area, but we have identified several more that are without a marker. It's possible the marker is buried, removed by vandals or never existed. Much work is being focused on defining the alleys and the roadway that ran east into the cemetery from Tuscola Road. Once this is done, trees in area of a burial site will need to be cut down so each burial site is accessable for regular lawn maintenance.
