Re: Owning a family cemetery
In Response To: Owning a family cemetery ()

Jan,

Laws for the maintenance of cemeteries vary by State and even localities within a given State may have exceptions, especially if the cemetery is located on private property.

Some examples for NC are found at this URL

Perhaps by contacting the county/township officials they could give you some direction on getting assistance for the maintenance of the cemetery in question.

A possible solution ....... We have ancestors buried in a cemetery that is located on private property here in Ohio and the township trustees have used local Boy Scout Troops to maintain cemeteries located on private property within this particular county.

Hope this helps,
Art Thomas
