There is a great deal of confusion about the location and current existence of the Sherard Cemetery. Some believe it to be the "Sheron Cemetery", but I counter that, if such a cemetery did have Sherard Family buried there, why wasn't the name "Sherard"? Sherard Family Members lived in Livingston, Alabama, for a good number of years. The majority of "acceptable persons" chosen to be buried in the Myrtlewood Cemetery does not appear to include Napoleon B. Sherard or any of his descedents. Members of the community currently state that the "Sherard Cemetery" fell "into disrepair", with the grave stones being broken by vandals and tossed into a local stream.
Emma, my wife, and her family, including her father, John "Johnnie" H. Sherard visited the Sherard Cemetery as late as 1968. Emma remarked her father, Johnnie Holmes Sherard, cried when he visited his father, Jack Holmes Sherard's, burial site. Apparently, members of the descendents of the Napoleon B. Sherard never came forward to keep the Sherard Cemetery from being "spoiled and vandalized". The direct result is some of the family members graves are now lost to memory of most.
In memory of those who did pass, I created a virtual "Sherard Cemetery" of those who are buried there. I used thetools from "Find-a-Grave" to create my contribution.
In Shreveport, LA, the remains of Emma's family, all of her Uncles and her one Aunt are buried in the historic Greenwood Cemetery. However, this wonderful cemetery is a place where repeated damage is caused by teenagers who like to destroy the resting places of people buried there. It is a shame. People no longer have respect for the dead.
