My ancestors are buried in that cemetery & I was last there in 1974. A collection was taked up each year at the annual Mobley family reunion of the descendants of David Harrison Mobley (son of Thomas M. & Harriett Coleman Mobley))to clear the grounds. Grandsons of D H Mobley, who lived in Walton County handled the clearing (hiring help, of course). At that time 24 graves were identifiable (I have these listed). This reunion ceased to happen sometime in the late 1970's as the descendants were so geographically scattered and the original children were deceased. To my knowledge, no one cares for it now (obviously, as it sounds completely overgrown). This cemetery is located across from the old Mobley Homeplace site (now torn down) which pre-dated 1833.
