Please review the description of this newly added "cemetery" - Back of Presbyterian Church Cemetery.

It doesn't appear to be a current cemetery or former one but an amalgam of several cemeteries that WERE in the county at one time (they no longer exist) and has only been created - "Due to the number of early burials and the value of the genealogical information contained on the markers, I have created a 'cemetery' for these burials."

Please note, according to the description, there ARE NO MARKERS LEFT IN PLACE. The member is referring to creating this "cemetery" due to finding documentation of transcriptions of markers only.

Is this allowed? IMO, I'd say no and as such, I'd like to request that not only the cemetery be deleted but the 321 entries as well. Bulk uploading of BU's shouldn't be allowed either.
