Good News! This cemetery has now been adopted by the Sons of the Confederate Veterans, Private Thomas E. Caldwells 2nd Brigade Camp Number 0031. These wonderful volunteers have cleaned up this cemetery and even replaced the tombstone for Benjamin F. Fewell. I have take photos of what they have been able to do.
