Curtis Ames, 9710 Madison St. N. E., Blame, MN 55434 would like information on Bowman Cemetery which is located in Section 9, Township 21, Range 22 on Highway 86, about 3/4 mile west of Twin Island Shopping Center, in Stone County. This cemetery has not been maintained and is covered with undergrowth. There are a few stone grave markers, all dated prior to 1900, but most markers are wooden all of the same design and all read "Unknown." Could these have relocated grave sites at the time Table Rock Lake was formed? Any help with information telling something about this cemetery would be appreciated.
Thanks to the Word Processing Dept. who helped with printing copy for the Quarterly.
Our sympathy is extended to the family of Dr. Myking Mehus and Mrs. Margaret Casey.
Weve lost two charter members.
