In 2002, David L. Wright became President of
Ettrick Cemetery Foundation, then later the registered agent of
the Foundation. With limited funds David was able to get
volunteer help, and the cemetery received much in the way
of maintenance and improvements from other sources.
Just as previous owners like Sadie & Floyd M. Bowman,
and Mary A. B. Woodruff and brother James plus others, the
Foundation owes lot of gratitude to David Wright for his labor of love.

As Ettrick becomes more of a
university town and less of a village,
the cemetery and VSU campus
draws focus to the history
of the Appomattox village of Ettrick.
