Mt. Zion Cemetery Handed Over to New Caretaker


The woman who is at the head of the Adopt-A-Cemetery campaign received some positive news Thursday.

Debra Beaver said Ohio County Commissioner Tim McCormick handed over all of the documents for Mt. Zion Cemetery, including plots and documentation regarding thousands of people buried there.

Beaver said nearly every night someone comes out to mow or trim a part of the Mt. Zion Cemetery.

“Yes I still have people who come and volunteer constantly,” Beaver said. “I have Mr. Savage who is going to come and clean out our drain system at no cost, I have several contractors I have sent applications to about repairing the Chapel and doing the road work.”

On July 1st, at 6 p.m., a group will place flags on the veterans’ graves.

A local business is doing their trash hauling for free. They’ve opened an account for donations at First Choice America Federal Credit Union. Also, a local historical society is giving them a clinic on tombstone repair on July 18th.

For more information or to volunteer to help, call Debra Beaver at (304) 312-4793.
