The Skelton Cemetery

We have been presented with an opportunity, that I for one would like to get involved with. In the City of Fayetteville, there is the Skelton Cemetery, my understanding not far from down town. It needs a lot of help. There are less than 30 graves there in a fenced off area. The site is actually 2 acres, but, out side the fence a lot of it is hit and miss toward finding graves. The current though is that most of those graves were slave graves. Anyways there is a confederate buried there. Within the next couple of weeks I am going to look at it with the President of the Washington County Cemetery Preservation Groups president.

This by no means is a perpetual care cemetery and we will have a bit of work to do, but I think it would be well worth the effort. Please give this some thoughts and email me with your thoughts on doing this.
