TOP STORY:

ABANDONED CEMETERY

MADISON, Wis. _ A southwestern Wisconsin town doesn’t have to assume control of and maintain land that a group of people contends is an old cemetery where some of their ancestors were buried, the state Supreme Court ruled Thursday.

The group believes their ancestors were buried on the land prior to 1918, although there are no headstones or other grave markers anywhere on the land and no public roads that lead to it or pass by it.
