Raising money for cemetery marker







In hopes of preserving Dailey’s Chapel Cemetery in Rosa, Harold Cleveland and those on the cemetery board, are asking the community to help in funding a marker to be placed on Ala 231. ‘It’s a large cemetery that is part of the Alabama Historic Cemetery Register and where people are still being buried,’ Cleveland says. The board needs donations of any amount to help in the fundraiser with the marker costing approximately $2,000. Dailey’s Chapel Cemetery dates back to 1850, but it had been a cemetery prior to that date, according to Cleveland. To donate, drop off a check to the Blount County Memorial Museum at 204 2nd Street North in Oneonta, or call museum curator Amy Rhudy for more information at 625-6905. Cemetery board members include Cleveland, Phillip Whited, Mariah Wood, Jane Chaviers, Julia Whisenant, and Gene Whited. –Nicole Singleton
