Adkins, Bishop, (do not have list before me to list but many surnames.


This a good size cemetary. I have visited this cemetary frequently when my Mother was living and have helped clean my relatives graves but it is impossible to even get to the graves now because the vegetation has totally taken over. Local residents say that before they could see the tombstones from their houses but not anymore. I was astonished when I visited there recently that the state & people could allow this to happen. I am unsure as to who to contact on this matter but something needs to be done. There are obviously civil war heroes buried there as I seen tombstones with civil war guns embedded in the tombstones.I was told that the local mines owned the land for the cemetary and alloted plots for workers & families who died. Not sure if this is a true fact but I have family buried there and my Father retired from the mines.
