Unnamed Cemetery

I just returned from a genealogy search to Sontag, MS. The community is well off the beaten path & has one store & a post office. A customer of the store informed me of a cemetery that is on land in Sontag, that was purchased by two men from LA. She said that they were bull-dozing  the headstones into the creek & that no record existed of them that she knew of. I may have lost any chance to locate some much needed info. Can anything be done to stop these men or at least  make a record of the people buried there?For more information, or if you can help, please contact CARLSGIRL6@aol.com
