LaPorte County Society To Hold Cemetery Tour

The LaPorte County, Indiana Genealogical Society will hold its annual cemetery tour on Tuesday, June 12 at 6 pm Central time at the Maple Grove Cemetery on County Road 1000 North in Hudson Township (1/4 mile east of County Road 700 East). This cemetery has been described as slightly spooky, perhaps because it is surrounded by maple and cedar trees and not much light enters, giving it a rather dark appearance. Dorothy Palmer and Gloria Arndt will discuss the history of the cemetery, as well as the Civil War veterans and War of 1812 veteran buried there along with other well-remembered people.

The cemetery tour is free and open to the public.
