A story from Albert Pisciotta is that when the county was removing so much of the gravel around the cemetery his Aunt, Martha Pisciotta Schimento, stood in the middle of the road and stopped the trucks from taking more gravel from the cemetery because her brother was buried there, and she was afraid they would disturb his grave.
