Bruce,

There was a post to the Spartanburg Co., SC Rootsweb mailing list yesterday stating that there was a Legal Notice published in yesterday's Spartanburg Herald-Journal that the graves of Presley C. Ballenger 1794-1835, Nancy Dodd 1799-1831 & Betsy Dodd 1825-1880 and other unknown persons buried in the cemetery will be moved. It stated that the property is located on the northside of John Dodd Road between I-26 and Southern Railway. The notice states that the relatives of such persons have not been able to be located and said graves have been found to be abandoned. They apparently plan to start removing the graves in 30 days after the notice. I contacted the County Administrator (as was stated in the Legal Notice) and they would not give me any info but referred me to the County Attorney, a Mr. Smith. Mr. Smith's secretary would not give me info as to the reason the graves were being removed and would not say what would be done with the remains from the cemetary.

Please contact me at proclaim@bellsouth.net.
