Cemetery project is team effort

Thursday, May 31, 2007

George's is working with the Barry County Cemetery Restoration and Preservation Committee to preserve the Hadley Cemeteries, which are located on pasture land the company owns southwest of Butterfield. George's paid for material and labor to fence the two cemeteries and also volunteered its equipment to reset several headstones. Pictured above, from left, are: Jack Fly and Ted Roller, members of the Cemetery Restoration Committee; George's employees Terry Caudill, Joe Chaney, Dustin Long and Jake McFarland; Randy McFarland, head groundskeeper; and Matt Skinner, plant manager. The headstone pictured above is made of hollow steel. It belongs to Sarah McKee, who died on Dec. 5, 1898. Democrat Photo
