Cemetery about to be destroyed
Was once a Family Cemetery. Ancestor J.J.C. Breazeale, Mo. Legislator and Civil War Veteran buried there, along with 3 wives and 3 other marked graves, there are others. I think may include slaves.
This Cemetery not protected by fence, cattle are allowed to roam over graves
Need information as to where to start. Cemetery is not on County Maps.
My relative Elizabeth Breazeale has deed to cemetery has no financial means to protect or restore cemetery. I need direction as to what steps are necessary to protect. I believe developers and farmers will soon destroy these graves
