this cemetery was a place to bury people from the old poor farm mental hospital it is believed that part of the graves were desicrated to provide fill for a county road some years back it is a forgotten cemetery and a forgotten people. I feel at least names should be given to the graves.
I would say no county officials would care about this since they were the ones who ordered the graves used for fill.
