A mystery landscaper has started sprucing up an aging cemetery that's at the center of a cleanup effort.

Neal Wickham said in Friday's edition of The Columbus Ledger-Enquirer that the admirer of the Peddy-Clark-Jones cemetery has cleared most of the heavy underbrush from the graves, which date to the mid-1800s.

Wickham and several other volunteers were planning to help tidy the triangular plot this weekend after the newspaper reported the state of the graveyard's disrepair.

Judy Tucker said she had no idea who cleared the brush but the work has paid off. She said "you can actually see all the graves now."
