|IMPORTANT PUBLIC NOTICE: The
City of Brooksville has recently advertised in the local newspaper
their plan to take any empty plots in the Brooksville Cemetery, which
have no current contact information and are more than 50 years old;
these plots are then going to be re-sold. These empty plots are
being considered abandoned simply because the city has no current
contact information for the families whom they were sold to. In
some cases it could be highly possible that there is no contact
information on file because the person has been interred in their plot
and if that plot is unmarked the city may consider it abandoned,
reusing this plot for a new burial. To further complicate the
issues the city has removed the database of burials that was formerly
listed on their web page.
This has caused some major debate and concern among area residents and family of those interred in the Historic Brooksville Cemetery. Below we have made available the list of empty plots considered abandoned by the city and if the relatives or descendants of those listed don't come forth these plots will be resold. If you have family listed we urge you to step-up or contact the appropriate relatives, immediately, to have your family property preserved. We also urge you to pass this list on to other who may not know of the situation. The city has only given 30 days to respond and if you will note at the bottom of the public notice it has already been published in the local newspapers and time is ticking fast. If you have any questions please email Jeff Cannon.
