A failed attempt to dissolve the Cemetery and sell its land leads to a complete reorganization, spearheaded by J. Frederick Kernochan, Edward J. Parish, and Daniel Parish.

The original owners have all died, but the families of many of them contribute generously. A few families, seeing an uncertain future, empty their vaults.
The walls are completely repointed.
