Abernathy Chapel Cemetery is located next to the defunct
Abernathy Chapel Church. It was auctioned off about 3 years
ago. I went to the auction and the auctioneer said that the
cemetery went with the property.

The person bought the property and proceeded to pile junk
cars on the graves.
I was notified by Mr Hanners who has
several family members buried there for some help. After
writing several letters, newspaper interviews, he still
wouldn't budge.

Then I contacted the person in Jefferson City who is the head
of the Cemetery registration board.
He drove down one Sunday afternoon.
We went to the cemetery, walked around it and agreed that
something had to be done right then.
We went to the front door, no one answered, even though we
could hear the t.v. inside.
We stood and knocked several minutes.
After realizing we wqeren't giving up, a woman opened the door.
We asked for the owne, she said he wasn't home.
Bill Maupin told her that the cars would have to be moved, the
graves cleaned up, etc.
She said something kind of smart-then Bill handed her his card,
which was very official.
She turned white as a ghost.
All she could say at that point was we don't want any trouble.
So I got that one cleaned up.
