Lynn Carey Grice sends the following update in July 2005.

"A few years ago, there was a discussion on the NYRENSSE-L@rootsweb.com mailing list about the overgrown, swampy area of Saint Joseph's Cemetery in South Troy. Although it was known that there were several tombstones in the section, they were inaccessible because of extremely dense vegetation. I'm happy to report that the area has been cleared! I was there on 30 June, and though I did not walk into the area, I could clearly see that the tombstones can now be reached. Jason, the caretaker, told me there is still a drainage problem and speculates that this is the reason the area was neglected for so many years. It is also probably the reason everything grows so lushly. If you have an interest in this section of the cemetery but have not visited in the past year, I urge you to go and see the transformation. Jason and the rest of the cemetery maintenance crew should be applauded for their persistence and dedication to clearing this area."
