Annual Cemetery Walk

The Iroquois County Genealogy Society is planning its 4th Cemetery Walk September 11, 2016 at 2 p.m. at the Maple Grove Cemetery in Milford.

We have 10 presenters this year talking about the history of the cemetery, the symbols on the stones, and some of the people buried there, such as teachers of the area, a murderess, a Civil War soldier, a corn breeder and more.

There are many maple trees in the cemetery (hence the name) so it will be a very shaded tour.

We have a wagon to transport you from site to site. The cemetery does have hills but is very well paved which makes for an easy walk if you wish to do so.
This is a rain or shine event so hope for no rain.

The cost is $5.00

The tour should take about an hour for the complete.

Bottled water will be available.

Also watch for articles in our local papers and FaceBook.
