In January 2012, Camden Trautz led his Boy Scout Troop #1532 and FCCPA members in cutting and clearing the brush and cleaning markers.
The Gooding-Seaton Cemetery has had three clean ups in three years. Each time, the cleanup has been a little easier, yet still truckloads of brush are hauled away each time. Many of the family cemeteries in Fairfax County have no one to care for them. Each cemetery needs a group or individual to adopt the cemetery and assume periodic maintenance. If not, the cemeteries might soon be lost to the “wild.”
