Other_Information:

I live a distance away, but my parents tell me the new church, John's Creek United Methodist, is trying to sell the land the old Church is on and the developer interested in buying wants to limit access to the cemetery (where there are still open plots people plan to use) and they believe, destroy some of the graves. A Warsaw Cemetery and Church preservation Assocition has been formed to try to save it. It is in an exploding area of growth in North Fulton Co near Atlanta and I'd say developers in that area generally win. We need any help available.
