# 72 Jackson Cemetery Cleanup 2017

Posted on

Jeff and I photographed this cemetery and posted it in 2009. You can see that blog post here https://rutherfordcemetery.wordpress.com/2009/02/16/72-jackson-cemetery/

At that time it was incredibly grown up. Since then Bobby Prosser and his son-in-law, W. D. Woodward have cleaned up the cemetery and done an AMAZING job. Here are their before and after photos of the cemetery.  Thanks to cemetery heroes like this that keep our older cemeteries clean and the information protected for future generations!
