    Flo Henry, A Texas woman  reaches out for support in maintaining a historic cemetery.

    TheGrio.com reports:

    The Ross Cemetery just off Highway 5 between McKinney and Fairview was established in the 1800s as a segregated burial site for black people. In recent years, the battle has been just to keep it clean.People used it as an illegal dump site, and trash and brush covered many of the graves of former slaves, veterans and residents of McKinney. Several members of Flo Henry’s family are buried there, from her grandfather to the uncles she once watched work there as gravediggers.
