We corresponded several months ago. My brother Ransom invested hundreds of hours trying to find some organization that would clean up and care for this cemetery, without success. I have a rather large notebook that I brought back from our summer home in upstate NY, with all the burials in the Old Davis Cemetery, his correspondence, etc. At that time it had become a pig lot. He even tried to buy the cemetery to preserve it, without success. I will be happy to xerox as much of this info as you would like, estimated about 100-150 sheets. Also, you may know of some way this, and the Hickman Cemetery, could be better preserved. These people were pioneers and deserve a decent burial place.
