Yes ma'am! Bethel University. Coincidentally, their color purple. LOL
Yep, I was there when it was Bethel College, founded in 1842 and was the Cumberland Presbyterian college. Colors purple and gold, mascot is a Wildcat!!

I have quite a bit of distant kin in that area. Small world!

My favorite professor was my History and Sociology professors.  They were fantastic. The religion professor was a fun guy. You should send me their names privately, I may know them.

Yep. It's sad. I've recently gotten into tombstone preservation. Repairing broken stones, resetting and cleaning them.  Smaller ones, nothing too big.
Mighty kind of ya. I do the same if I see anything broken, but some are beyond restoration out of being too madly damaged.

Thomas Prince Cemetery

I don't know anything about this particular cemetery, but if you like, I'd be happy to do some research on it. I'm always willing to help out anyone doing family research! If you're interested, I'll PM you my email address and you can send me what you have.

Well, I donít have anything thatíll do the same, but I have a friend that will sometimes come and fix them with either concrete, or Iíll help by putting on a very strong and weather resistant bond that usually does better than concrete. But as I said, some are too far gone for repairs.

Not too bad. I apprenticed and was grandfathered in.  What part of the world do you live in (general)? There may be someone not far from you.
