Corrections to Grave Markers Removed From Fellowship CemeteryFeb 5th, 2013 | By Lynette | Category: Front Page
Regarding the Fellowship Cemetery story that appeared in the Carrier on Jan. 30, Mrs. JoAnn Wilson does not have any future burial plots reserved.
Also, the rule changes as to how the plots could be marked out were in reference to a letter her cousin Coretha Russell received. While there have been rule changes, Mrs. Wilson did not receive any letters from the board of trustees for the cemetery; she was relating an incident that happened to her cousin Coretha who received the letter. This reporter misunderstood and thought she meant that both she and her cousin received a letter, but only Mrs. Russell received a letter.
Mrs. Wilson’s photographs were taken near a major holiday, but it might have been closer to Christmas than Thanksgiving. It was after her cousin had received the letter about mid-December from the board of trustees asking her to remove some of the markers from her family member’s gravesites, and Mrs. Wilson then went to the cemetery to try to document some of what was happening.
Apologies to Mrs. Wilson for the mistakes.
