The cemetery seems well kept, but the big monuments are leaning. If no action is taken and they are allowed to fall they will fracture in a major way. I am unaware of how the name Belew Cemetery was used for this cemetery unless there are Belew burials here in unmarked graves. Another possibility is the property was owned or donated by a Belew family, but that is less likely.
