The Grave yard of the first official Mayor of Richlands, North Carolina, L.W. Hargett, and his family was encrusted with briar brush, vines, fallen trees and multiple inches of debris and compost when first visited by Jack Robinson. He has since cleaned this family grave yard, as with his other once endangered cemeteries, with care and respect. Now the Hargett family will rest in peace in a clean and protected environment.
