Since 2008, family members have been fighting the battle to get ownership of Shady Grove away from The United Methodist Conference of Gainesville, Ga. This was accomplished after 5 years of fighting The Conference, neighbors, and lots of other people who stuck their nose where it should not have gone. Family members had to form an LLC in order to get the deed changed, but it was accomplished on March 6, 2013.
It has still not been without some neighborly problems but all has been resolved now. We are working towards bringing Shady Grove into the future, which includes having a cleared cemetery with a nice fence to prevent further encroachment, as the property is now down to 1 acre.
