Town Clerk Judith Stratton and retired resident Florence Beebe began the project without veterans in mind when the pair took on a project to plot out each cemetery in town to record who is buried and where. The two are also trying to get as much information about the soldiers as possible -- including military ranks, ancestries, location and date of birth and death, in addition to where they are buried.
A copy of all the information the women have found on veterans and others buried in town can be viewed at the Town Office. I wish someone would help them put the information online so that descendants wouldn't have to travel thousands of miles to see the information!
