ROXIE, MS - The Roxie Cemetery is one of the oldest in Franklin County. The question is ... Why is Cemetery so run down with grass, weeds, fire ants and poison ivy? Who is in charge? Some of the graves go back to the civil war and some of the graves are now at the edge of the surrounding woods and could be lost forever considering the tombstones have been broken and are now leaning up against others. Many are overgrown and it is apparent that not all graves get the grass cut. Why ? Look at the few pictures !
Just a simple question. Why is Cemetery so run down when so many generations of Franklin County residents are buried in this Cemetery that has such a long history?
