"I cleared that cemetery once back in 1960s, got the first and worst case of poison ivy I've ever had... I visited cousin Carrie Parham Hamme soon after the clearing event to let her know what I had done. She asked if I wanted money for it. I declined. I had hoped that she would get a subtle hint to maintain the cemetery since her mother and father were buried there... She didn't take the bait."
