Willey Wroten


It appears that there may be a number of graves that are not marked. My husband and I have been keeping it mowed since we moved here a year ago. The farmer who owns the land adjoining the cemetary is in the process of selling it to be developed as a housing development and I fear it will be destroyed.


I have no idea who to contact regarding this matter.
