Stories of the Herrings

Cleaning the Cemetery

After Martha Ball's son, George, married, he and his family moved to Texas. On one of his visits home, George visited the cemetery and noticed that it had grown up. There were tree saplings all over the place, and it had not been mown.

George was upset by the sight of the graveyard where so many of his kinfolk were buried. Through his urgings the cemetery was cleaned, trimmed, and made to look nice again. The older citizens of Moss Creek end the surrounding communities remember this story, and the cemetery has never fallen into such a state again.
