Join us at noon for the dedication of the first “Unknown” grave marker, one of 33 which will eventually be placed on unmarked graves thanks to last year’s ground penetrating radar work. Replacement markers for Floyd Dozier and others will also be dedicated. The location of Mr. Dozier’s grave was determined by the combination of research, triangulation, mapping survey data and ground penetrating radar work.

 

All proceeds will benefit the preservation and maintenance of the cemetery.
