Clean-up Projects at KING Cemetery, Mercer County, WV

.......KING Cemetery,
                                   
Montcalm, Mercer County, West Virginia
           .........................................................................

                               
                                    
                     .......The condition of the cemetery can be rated as "poor":
                                          all of the normal activities,
                                                        of Mother Nature, 
                                                                     have been un-checked for many years.
                             UPDATE: 
this cemetery rating is now "very good" as of 2003. 
                                      In April and June, several cousins, listed below, went into this
                                 jungle, with the desire, intent, commitment, tools, and, equipment, to make 
                                     a drastic positive change in the appearance and condition of this location. 
                                          Under-growth, saplings, downed and dead trees, were cut and sawed,
                                                       and removed to the outer perimeters;
                                          some tombstones and field stones were again re-positioned;
                                          a de-foliant chemical was sprayed on the aggressive plant life;
                                          4" grape vines were cut out; and,
                                          grave sites of our family members were cleaned to the earth.
                                          A couple more days of work are required 
                                                                           to finish the clean-up project.
                       ................There are two areas of well-kept family plots that exhibit care and 
                                                respect by their dedicated descendants.
  
                                        
......................................................................

                     .......a group of cousins were at this location in 2000, 2001, 2002, and 2003; 
                                           looking for and finding, 
                                                 grave sites of our Davidson relatives;
                                                       clearing the areas;
                                                             re-setting the tombstones;
                                                                   taking photographs; and,
                                                                         enjoying our fellowship together.
