Gone But Not Forgotten

Posted by Warren Krech on October 30, 2012

The City of Jefferson, in cooperation with the Bertha D. Webb-Brown families,  has dedicated a new monument in the Old City Cemetery at 1000 E. McCarty St.  The monument recognizes individuals buried at Old City Cemetery who have no permanent gravestone markers and individuals whose markers may have been moved or removed through past decades.

The project was led by Glover Brown in remembrance of his Aunt Nora Webb, who died in 1923 at age ten. Because of hard times she was buried without a marker, as were many others in the cemetery.  Here’s what he told us following the dedication:

 Anyone with ancestors or loved ones who are interred without markers at the Old City Cemetery may have their ancestor’s or loved one’s name, birth and death dates engraved on the monument.
