ALLEENE CEMETERY - Sad Report
I am sorry to report that from reading all
the documents pertaining to this desecration of Alleene Cemetery
there appears to be nothing that can be done to stop it. It seems
the trustees are not in favor of changing any of their policies
and so far the legal system is not favoring those families who are
trying to protect
it. The original organization of the governing trustees gave the
sitting trustees the right to choose their replacements and this stops
any effective input from those who have family buried there. Therefore,
the trustees have unfettered control.
Let this be a warning to those of you who
have given this much power to a similar governing body over your
family cemetery. And BE WATCHFUL!!!!
Note: Plans have been made
to re-canvas the cemetery in an attempt to bring the list current.
