EMILY ALBERA | CONTRIBUTED MAKEOVER: Members of Zion Episcopal Church, established in 1738, thought a makeover was due for the memorial stones of Nancy Eborn (b. 1797 – d. 1868) and Sarah Tankard (b. 1812 – d. 1900).  Dean Ruedrich, a restoration specialist from Durham, and his assistant, Julia Tew, refurbished over fifteen stones and taught Zion members how to use D-2 to safely clean other stones in the old cemetery.
