Please contact the person who submitted that picture - Ashley Armstrong. She photographed Greenlawn Cemetery. Due to disability, I am not able to do much photographing. If you would like me to transfer management of the memorial to you, I will be happy to do so.

I do not have any Vogan pictures that I took.
I took a couple of Vogel pictures, though. Which one are you referring to?

Are you looking for the old Presbyterian Church Cemetery that is now the Baptist Cemetery or the Methodist Cemtery? Either one - I can send you a Google Map to show you where it is. Actually they are across the street from one another.

Just wanted to let you know that Greenwood is now being maintained by a group of locals. I can try to find the Vogan's that you are looking for, but I don't know how successful I will be.
|thomas alexander||Taking care of the memorials|
Hi Soozie, I just started contributing and I just recently visited Kings Chapel looking for 2 different graves that were impossible to find. The head stones are falling over, they are sinking into the ground, I even seen a couple of head stones that were leaning against trees, and even seen one site that had 3 markers just piled up on each other. They go in a mow the grass but they don't do any trimming. Something needs to be done with our local cemeteries with the upkeep. There are memorials there that are so old that they are unreadable. The owners of the cemeteries need to go in and on the unreadable markers need to place something there that shows who is buried there. Something needs to be done about the horrible conditions of final resting places of our loved ones. I have seen so many other cemeteries that are so well maintained, so why cant they take care of the grounds here?

I just read your post about the unkempt state of Greenwood Cemetery. I don't know if you know this or not, but there are a team of people that were organized by a local of New Castle that are supposed to go out there this coming spring/summer and take care of the situation. My husband and I were out there this past summer trying to take care of some of it, but unfortunately, we don't have the proper equipment nor the manpower to do much. We did some, but it was just a small dent in the problem. The other part of that cemetery that exists way in the back (the entrance to this side is off of a street from Smithfield St...can't remember the name of the road, though). That side is absolutely horrendous! Currently, they have the main entrance chained off. It's been that way for several months now. I have no idea why but it is.
Hopefully they get a regular caretaker for that cemetery real soon. The public can only do so much! Take care.

Soozie, sounds like you had a wonderful time. It is always great to see our loved ones gravesite in person. It becomes a whole different view. Have fun in New Castle.
