Pioneer Cemetery Restoration

This is me with one of the stones that I restored. This was a cemetery restoration project in 2009. We go in, reset the stones, clean the moss, and record the information. I was covered head to toe in dirt and happy. Happy to remember and happy to help. This is Lingeman Cemetery, now the oldest cemetery in town. In it are some of the founders. The first postmaster, Benjamin Logan is here.

And, I am so excited that I know this and can share it with you. In 1948 a town publication stated that he was the first post master but they didn't know what happened to him. I DO! He is in this cemetery, I found him. I am sharing him with you and I am begging you to advocate to protect these pioneer cemeteries.
