Two descendants of people buried in Hebron, Washington County, are trying to organize a committee to clean up the ghost town's cemetery.
Hebron, about 5 miles west of Enterprise, Washington County, was abandoned in the late 1800s after flooding and water problems.Sixty-seven people, including Zera Pulsipher, a member of the LDS First Council of the Seventy from 1838 to 1862, are buried in Hebron. Descendants of people buried there are asked to contact Ned L. Huntsman in Salt Lake City, 255-8642, or Phil L. Tyler in St. George, 673-4773.
Huntsman said fences around the burial plots have fallen down, as have several tombstones. He said organizers' plans include putting a chain-link fence around the site.
