This cemetery is in St.Joseph Missouri. It is in the worst shape i have ever seen for a cemetery. The headstones are in deplorable conditions. They are broke, knocked over and laying on the ground. I think all this is do to vandalism. There is headstones that sit back in the trees that you can't even get to. How can you go about getting this cemetery took care and repaired?

I am a volunteer at a cemetery that was in the same sad shape. GET the media involved!! It was amazing what bad press will do.

If you go to the find a cemetery and type in Proximity in North Carolina you can see an updated picture. Here are sthe stories about the one I work with.
