Good news for one Region 8 cemetery

BLACK OAK, AR (KAIT) - One Region 8 cemetery in serious need of some TLC has received a little bit of help, thanks to a report by Region 8 News.

Last week we told you about the 120-year-old Mangrum Cemetery located outside Black Oak.

Cemetery owners Paul and Madge Taylor said they tried to make sure the grass was mowed ever two weeks to maintain the upkeep. But, they said, storms and age had taken it's toll on many of the old headstones.

Now, calls offering help, as well as donations have been coming in. Workers have been stopping by the cemetery to assist with upkeep and repairs.
