A Milestone Day

On February 22, 2017 a small group of volunteers calling themselves the "CPC Angels" sent requests for grave markers to the Veterans Administration for the following veterans buried in the cemetery:

John Day:  Civil War
Frank Leroy Flanery:  WW1
Reid Arthur Ferris:  A Bronze Star recipient - 12 year vet of Airforce
Faxon Hayford:  Civil War  Wounded in Richmond and Gettysburg!
Marion Johnson:  Civil War
Alfred Smith

Researching, gathering documentation, and locating next of kin to sign completed marker application forms was no small task for the Angels.  When markers are received, they will be set during a special public ceremony to honor these previously unmarked veterans so they will be known and thanked by the living.
