Is THIS Mike Blevins from Switchback, by any chance??? Yes, though, this cematery is in need of help AGAIN. I believe it was 2003 or 2004 when volunteers payed and worked on it. At that time, the condition of this place was HORRIBLE. Now, it is not as bad as it was then but needless to say, it is in bad condition. I drove through there a few months ago and there was trash everywhere again and headstones were rolled over and broken again also! It is sad because when I was raised, I was taught to RESPECT someone's grave and it is saddening that ANYONE could do that to ANYONE'S grave... I mean... IT IS A GRAVE!!!!!!

Do they need some more volunteers? Who can we contact to offer our help in the effort to keep it cleaned up?

I would like to help out with this cause. How does one contact someone in charge of the effort?

Who do you contact to find graves ? My great grandparents are buried there and my grandfathers grave is sunk in and needs dirt. I was there a few weeks ago and headed there right now. Yes there is still trash and headstones destroyed. Who is taking care of it now? Our family appreciates the efforts and thanks you. The Woods family.
