RE: Cemetary almost abandoned
Same issue for me... live too far away to do much.

I plan on contacting the county and state officials. I'll email pictures of the vandalized gravestones to a few Missouri organizations.

Perhaps awareness of local and state officials will help. Who knows?

Cemetary almost abandoned
As of August 2012, the Gustavus Adolphus Parberry stone was knocked off the pedestal, as were the stones of many of the other graves.

The cemetary is difficult to find, but just a few steps away (hilly) from a road. The cemetary has not been maintained, but is surrounded by a wire fence. A little difficult to navigate with the overgrown trees/brush.

The damage looked like vandalism, although a local resident disagreed.

I'm afraid the cemetary will vanish and be overtaken by the neighboring farmers unless someone takes an effort to take care of the cemetary.
