Invitation to Cemetery Dedication, Whitley County, Nov 10

[Special From IGS Director Sue Caldwell]

Last year IGS gave a $1,000 grant to the Whitley County Genealogical Society for the Friends of Concord Cemetery for restoration work at the Concord Cemetery.  Yesterday I received an invitation to attend a dedication ceremony.   Before and after photos of the cemetery are amazing. 

The dedication will be held at Concord Cemetery, Johnson Rd. and 150 N (Carroll Rd) near Columbia City  in Whitley County on Sunday Nov 10 at 2 PM.  "The 30th Indiana Volunteer Infantry Re-enactors will be dedicating our eight Civil War veterans buried at Concord.  The ceremony will include a laying of the wreath gun salute, along with a horse drawn coach from Sheets and Childs Funeral Home in Churubusco."

Jim and I will probably attend as we recently discovered that I have a 3rd gr. grandmother buried in a nearby cemetery and that he has a couple of members of his Baker family buried in the same county.

If you and other IGS members did not receive the invitation, will you please pass this information on to our group.
