In Reply to: Sullivan Co. Cemetery Cemetery Threatene by Nora Hiatt of 539

the brainer cemetery is not the only one being destroyed in sullivan co. the farnsworth cem has already seen much damage there is one my children always played in at campground called graveyard lakein the early 60's that the stones are completely destroyed and laying against a tree that no one can read. these all contain veterans of many different wars. good hope cemetery has been stripped so close that it will probably cave in in a few more years. all ground east of highway in sullivan co. is almost totally owned by the coal companies and many of the older churches had adjoining cemeteries. thanks for listening and if you have relatives in sullivan co. PLEASE HELP STOP THEM
