Transfer dispute in Fall River, Massachusetts

There is a dispute about transferring an old cemetery, Mother's Brook Cemetery, from Freetown to Fall River, Massachusetts, because town officials from both communities are uncertain about bearing maintenance costs.

Addendum, Feb. 9: Thanks to the diligence of one of the readers to the original article, here is an earlier article detailing the work of an Eagle scout to clean the place up, and reviving a debate about whose cemeterie this actually is. And according to the reader, the dispute dates to 1905.
