A Morgan County Cemetery has recently been added to the Alabama Historical Commission’s historic cemetery register. Lawrence Cove Community Cemetery is in Eva. The Alabama Historical Commission created the registery to recognize Alabama’s historic cemeteries and to encourage their continued preservation. The Lawrence Cove Cemetery is the 15th cemetery in Morgan County to be listed in the Alabama registry that now features 979 cemeteries statewide. During a recent cleanup at the Lawrence Cove Cemetery, a field stone grave marker was discovered, and after washing the mud off of it, an inscription was discovered that read “W.W. Drinkard, born on Sept. 8, 1873 and died on Feb. 4, 1886. Athelia Woodall Gibbs worked tirelessly to see the cemetery added to the historic registry. Community fish fry

Corinth West Baptist Church hosted a community fish fry June 26. The men’s group, led by Bro. Glenn Miller and Tony Smithson, were in charge of cooking the fish and hushpuppies, and Dana Henslee and Christie Guthrie, with the women’s group provided the side items and desserts for those attending. Several church members delivered meals to folks in the Upshaw, Friendship, Piney Grove, Battleground, Macedonia, Mt. Vernon and Corinth areas.
