Why don't you do an article on family cemeteries that are being preserved in Adair County? I am sure Mike Watson can give you some background. This particular cemetery started in brambles. There could be a tour, with a little history of the family's settlement in Adair County as another possibility.



More info on cemetery: Robert Montgomery came with his father, Frances Montgomery, in 1805, there were 72 in their party including slaves. Frances bought 2,000 acres in Joppa and Ozark. He gave all of his children property and slaves. This was Robert's part. Robert set the ground aside for this cemetery. My family has cared for it through the generations.

Thank you for any consideration.

P. S. The Adair Co. Library needs money to set up their genealogy collection in a separate building that they have on their property. Could also list the specific needs they have, filing cabinets, etc.
