A disturbing article about how one's perspective could change the face of a cemetery.
According to an article in the Mansfield News Journal, "Trustees authorized work crews to displace headstones at the Nave Cemetery, upsetting members of the Ohio Genealogical Society last week." and one trustee was quoted as saying, "As trustees, we don't rebuild cemeteries, we're not genealogists."
And that's exactly the reason that a partnership with the local genealogical society prior to the moving of headstones might have held off the current turmoil. Could your ancestor's stone be the next one moved "to make lawn maintenance easier?"
