I wonder why someone doesn't fix the stones that are falling?? Is the family members all dead?? I would say so since the stones are old but looks like someone would care enough to straighten them up. It makes the cemetery look bad even though I love looking at the dates and names but they are dangerous leaning like they are. Wish I had the money to hire someone to do it for them.

Isn't it strange can the city Mayor and City Council take private property from the graves but not fix private property toom stones leaning or about to fall over?

You can call a local funeral home. They can tell you who owns or runs the cemetery and then you can call and ask them about if there is a group that may be able to help fix the rocks.....sometimes really old cemeteries have a group of people who help keep it clean and raise money to replace old rocks. Hope it helps.

just to give you some info...they are working on straighten up the headstones...but it is something that has to take time because some of the markers are so old...have to be careful and not damage them because they can not be replaced...just go back out there and look and you can see where they are working on them...because some do not have any family members still alive...it is nice cemetery...

another bleeding heart liberal wanting the government to take care of them, instead of getting up off their lazy ass and doing something themselves.

Did the Mayor and city Council call the Funeral home to remove and store those love one's private property, taken from the grave yard off private property to of all places the city’s garbage truck garage?

Why is it does if the Mayor and City Council could use the jail inmates to remove love ones memorials private property, from love one’s private graves?
Would they also not fix the leaning or falling Tome Stones?

It is usually posted in well kept cemeteries their policy on the up keep of the grounds. And others only clean up near memorial day when they have dinner on the grounds. So check with the owners or keeper on the cemetery. And the reason the use prisoner because its free labor.

I chose a cemetery that didn't have inmates cleaning it. I made a hasty choice "getting our house in order", in selecting one that had flat markers. Mud on the grave markers upset me. Is there any church that has a cemetery that can help me with any cost to do this right? Let me know your church name and I will call you from the phone book. Thank you so much.

There is a cemetery on the Nashville Highway before you get to Powell Lane. Not many buried there and is not keep up with inmates. Guess you want taxpayer to pay to keep up your cemetery. It would cost you over $500 a year to keep your lots well kept if not for taxpayers. Just ask and see.

why not let them mow it, the inmates mow a yard owned by w. bussart down town, so if they can mow that for him they can mow all graves

There are not any in Lewisburg and don't think there are any in Marshall County but could be wrong. Bethberi is not a full time active church, they meet there ever once in a while and do have a small cemetery around the church. I don't think they would sell you a plot if you had not been a member. Doubt if there is any room left there, it is the oldest church in Marshall County.

Thank you. I have seen some churches not in use and the cemeteries are still being filled. We have joined the Methodist and Baptist Churches.

Tombstones are private property and should not be touched unless they are an ayesore

But that would amount to just 'using' them for their resources rather than as a Christian family. Settle on a church, be apart of them, and THEN let them take care of your needs. Otherwise, any ol' cemetery would do. Either visit your decease and take care of the marker or pay someone to do it. I visit cemeteries and always see tombstone in disarray because families die off or move and no one cares. If you don't care enough to have it taken care of, then you are one sad person. You can afford to have internet, but can't afford to get off your butt to go clean the marker. What a whiner.
