CONSERVATION LEAGUE VOLUNTEERS SHOW OAK CLIFF CEMETERY SOME RESPECT
By Roy Appleton Dallas Morning News


The place is more presentable now. The graves have some breathing room.

All thanks to a team of volunteers, who paid some respect Saturday to a family and history.

Michael Amonett and Alicia Quintans learned of the McAdams Cemetery at a public meeting about the Southern Gateway highway expansion project. Curious and concerned that the proposed widening of Interstate 35E might threaten the site, they checked it out. Finding it plant-choked, they organized a cleanup with other members of the Old Oak Cliff Conservation League.

And Saturday afternoon, with highway traffic roaring past, Amonett, Quintans, Judy Brooks and a dozen or so other workers stepped in — whacking, clipping and trimming away at purple-blooming periwinkle and other growth engulfing the site south of Illinois Avenue.

Nathaniel “N.O.” McAdams, a Dallas County sheriff and longtime county commissioner, dedicated the the cemetery in 1892 “for the purpose and consideration that the graves of the buried dead be preserved and perpetuated.”
