My name is Jeffrey Scott Smith from Vienna, WV. Yesterday, Sunday, June 24 (2001?) my companion, Kathryn Mack and her two granddaughters, Kayla and Julie Underwood and myself, cut 3 foot high weeds to clear and clean the Callow Cemetery that is on Richard Mullens farm. It is on the hill about 1/2 mile north and west of Beech Grove Church. We cut trees and cut down the tall grass. Next we mowed it. With the help of Mr. Mullens, we righted two head stones that were very heavy. The Cemetery now looks almost park like. Mr. Mullens said he would put a fence around the cemetery to keep the cattle out. Stop by and take a look!
