City files notice to Wadsworth descendants

The City of Barnesville has issued legal notice to possible descendants of those buried in the Wadsworth Cemetery that it will apply for a grave relocation permit in Lamar superior court. The city plans to move the remains and burial objects to Greenwood Cemetery with the ‘most respectful treatment of human remains’. The city originally applied to the county commission for a permit and got it. Descendants appealed, arguing that Lamar superior court was the proper place to seek the permit. Fulton County Judge John Goger ruled in their favor after a February hearing. The legal notice is published on page 5B of the 4.10.18 print edition of The Herald Gazette.
