I received this note from Nina Martin:

"Let me commend Mereda Pierce who owns the farm on which the Langworthy Cemetery is located. On a hot, hot Sunday two weeks ago Mereda and her son were there with lawnmower and weed-eater tending the cemetery. According to a neighbor she performs this task regularly. Everyone in Jones County should appreciate her!

Thanks again,
Nina"


Click on the for a photo of the tombstone. This reading was completed in September 2006 by Dale & [an error occurred while processing this directive]. Joanne says, "There are 4 or 5 broken/unreadable stones that we could see. We have tried for years to locate cemetery records for Langworthy Cem. No one appears to have them. So this listing is purely a tombstone reading."

The reading below was transcribed by [an error occurred while processing this directive] from the WPA Gravestone records.

The W.P.A. cemetery records were created by the Works Project Administration, Graves Registration Project. The Works Project Administration was a relief program created during the presidency of Franklin Delano Roosevelt in the 1930s. The program provided employment for millions of people during the Great Depression.

The records are an excellent source for information about stones that existed 70 years ago, but have since disappeared. These records are not complete nor are they always accurate. Be sure to check for misspellings and try to confirm the information through another source.
