Gone but not forgotten

Chesmore Funeral Home

Mike Whelan has been doing a lot of work on the Wilson Street cemetery. There are some veterans’ graves that have been flagged regularly for several decades but no one is sure who is actually in the plots. One of them is just a simple white wooden cross. Mike has been able to get an unknown veteran stone for one. He has also repaired Thomas Fetherston’s (KIA at Gettysburg) headstone, and done a lot of other cleaning and repairing. Tom Cronin of the Callanan Cronin Funeral Home donated a beautiful antique flower pot which is now centered in the graveyard (inset).
