I met up with the St. Peter's grounds keeper today. Our first scan of the area was unsuccessful, so he called the church. The secretary gave us the names of the surrounding plots and bingo, we found what we were looking for! Without his help I would have never found the McKenna - Hurley plot. A flush stone was completely covered in snow, had grass growing over it, and had sunk about 4 inches. Another stone had toppled so the words were facing the ground. The only obvious stone was weathered and very hard to read. I couldn't have been more pleased. He even offered to help me right the toppled stone and raise the sunken stone bit come spring time.
