HARRIMAN, Tenn. (WVLT)-- The families of loved ones buried at McCarroll graveyard are seeking help to get the site cleaned up.
The graveyard, located right by the Harriman Cemetery, has been around for decades.
William Love's mother and grandmother are buried at the site. He's been visiting their graves since he was child. He said each visit required some cleaning.
"It was something that needed to be done," Love said.
That's because if he or other families don't maintain the graves, no one else will. Love pointed out some tombstones are covered by grass and trees.
"Enough is enough," he said.
Residents have reached out to city officials about the graveyard that's been vandalized multiple times. They were told it's not city or county property.
Chrystal Jones told Local 8 News the Harriman Cemetery Association wants to help clean up, too.
But it's still unclear who is financially responsible for the graveyard.
