ICHS Cemetery Walk
The Iroquois County Genealogical Society will go ahead with its annual cemetery walk of St. Mary's Church Cemetery in Beaverville on Sunday, Sept. 13 at 2pm. So far, about nine people buried in the cemetery have been chosen to be topics of presentations. There are no trees in the cemetery so attendants are encouraged to bring an umbrella for shade. There will be no people-mover so lawn chairs should be brought for those who need to sit. For the most part, the cemetery is fairly level, but it is suggested those who attend should wear good outdoor shoes. When participants arrive, they will sign in and pay the small admission fee. At the admission site, several books of St. Mary's Church will be available, with the opportunity to order books which have sold out. In case of rain, the “walk” will take place in the church with a tour of the church conducted afterward. For more information on this event, call the ICGS office at 815-432-3730 or send an email to email@example.com. As more information is put together, it will be announced through upcoming news releases.
