This day will be spent in gathering up the raw materials needed to install 10 Dignity Markers in Grantsburg. One marker will be installed at Union Chapel Yates Cemetery first which will then allow for time flexibility for others to come and see the location; it is for a common ancestor Grandfather who died in 1858 and was buried in an unmarked grave in the Yates Graveyard. This is how the cemetery was known until they constructed Union Chapel in the late 1880's.

A quick trip will be made to Tick Ridge Cemetery to inspect the headstone work performed on two Laswell graves. Then It will be off to Grantsburg Cemetery which is the primary purpose of this trip. The other nine Dignity Markers will be installed in this location. A 100% photo shoot will be done of all headstones along with detailed reference shoot to enable a sense of location within the cemetery. This work is being done to update the cemetery records for the Cemetery Board to include a website for Grantsburg Cemetery.
