As far as I know, the address is

Rutherford County Historical Society
P.O. Box 906
Murfreesboro 37230-0906

I do not of a phone number or e-mail address, I have been looking for one myself.

I believe, personally, that if your ancestor is buried somewhere, you have every right to go clean it up without asking permission-except maybe from the person who owns the land(who isn't always easy to locate). I think I would just gather some friends or relatives one nice day and just go do it!

Mike,

I saw your post about your ggg grandfather's grave. Is this on the Watkins side of your family?



This is your cousin, and I haven't kept in touch with you for a while, and was wondering if it was. if it is, let me know and maybe I can lend a hand to help get it cleaned.
