Civil War Soldier at Dunham Grove Cemetery
This is an impressive monument in a country cemetery near Fayette. While the overall condition is very good, the SUVCW Abernethy Camp will be restoring the monument. This includes a few corrosive pits and a bullet hole behind the right ear. (See close-up photo below) On Highway 150 between West Union and Fayette, turn west on 175th Street - continue to a T-intersection and turn south on M Avenue. Dunham Grove Cemetery is at the NW corner of M Avenue and 170th Street. Thanks to Court Stahr for information about the monument and photos. The photos were taken 10/3/08.
