Newlon/Nolon Springs Cemetery

Submitted by Richard Meador





February 9, 2009 - There has been vandalisim in this cemetery in the past but is has been some time. It looks at the front near the road as if there might have been a vehicle accident in the past, as the stones near the road are all down in one spot. Some of the stones and markers on the south east part of the cemetery have been flagged....not sure why.
In todays Southwest Times Record it says that the housing authority is tryng to have the area re-zoned to multi family from a single family zoning.
The railroad runs on the east side of the cemetery & they have not been very cautious as they have left railroad debris in the cemetery, such as rail & ties.....Richard
