Workday set for Maxwell Cemetery
There will be a workday in the Maxwell Cemetery on Saturday, Dec. 1, beginning at 9 a.m. and lasting until dusk, with a noon break for lunch and a meeting to discuss forming a cemetery association for care and preservation. Those participating are encouraged to take water or cold drinks, and food to share, such as a covered dish, barbecue, or fried chicken.
Appropriate clothing, shoes, and gloves should be worn to cut tree limbs, brush, vines, weeds, and grass. Use of a brush-chipping machine is being sought so brush will not have to be hauled off. Attempts will be made to place tombstones upright and make minor repairs.
Access to the Maxwell Cemetery is off F.M. 536, about 15 miles west of Floresville. From I-37, head east on F.M. 536 approximately 3-1/2 miles. Signs will be posted. Vehicles will be allowed only in designated areas. A four-wheel drive vehicle will be available to transport workers from the road to the cemetery site, along a path the owner will designate.
Everyone is welcome to help, especially descendants of people buried in the cemetery.
For more information, call Dorothy Mills (a Carver/Neal descendant) at 830-914-2809 in Marion.
