This hurts my heart. Some of my family were relocated to other cemeteries but some of them still remain there. For $2 I would buy it too! If I were rich: I would put up a fence with a locked gate; hire forensic specialists to identify remains; hire genealogists to notify living relatives; buy coffin/headstones to inter unclaimed deceased in their own plot; hire clean up crews to keep cemetery in order annually. Any cemetery records would be donated to genealogy society or library, etc.
