On Clarence Woody's place (1987) on Santa Fe Pike, just east of Snow Creek. Cemetery 400 yards back on top of hill behind house. Mr. James Woody (2009) current land owner takes care of this cemetery by using weed killer periodically to keep the vegetation from encroaching into the graves. Some of the monuments are in need of restoration.  Mr. Woody is looking for someone who will help him do that. To be of assistance you should be trained in the art of repairing monuments with Epoxy Glue; using such glues as Sikadur 31.
