The county commission seemed ready to help once it was a non-profit. Will the HCWVCPA be going back with a request?

Yes, the Historic Clarksburg WV Cemetery Preservation Alliance will hopefully in the near future. In addition to the County Commission’s request and concern pertaining to public funds benefiting a private organization, I believe the recent change in ownership of the Former IOOF Cemetery satisfies that. There were other criteria laid out pertaining to the Former Clarksburg IOOF Cemetery Restoration Project and we are working towards resolving that as well. The current ownership situations at the Daniel Davisson DAR Cemetery and the Jackson Cemetery project already satisfy their ownership criteria. The other criteria regarding these restoration projects involve prioritization of the numerous markers that are in various degrees of disrepair.
