Alan writes, "There (click on) are two bases in their original place (no markings that I could find on them), and the markers that aren't buried in the ground are leaning up against trees, which some years earlier had been done to prevent the cattle from trampling the stones more.  They're grouped (click on) around three trees - the photos of each group are attached and they're numbered in order from west to east.
After taking the pictures I did place them back at the base of the trees front side down to try to keep them from weathering more."
