Volunteers improve grave markers on Boyle farm
A local group recently spent a Saturday uncovering and re-setting 16 grave monuments on a farm owned by Cortney Shewmaker.
The project was sponsored by the Michael W. McHolan Family and Walden Funeral Home.
One of the monuments is for Henry Clay Whitehouse, who was Abraham Lincoln’s first cousin.
All of the monuments had fallen over and many were buried in the earth up to a foot deep.
