Barger Cemetery

Submitted by Peter Pluskett

Thanks for your pictures and hope we get more

It was quite overgrown and I have been making weekly trips to the cemetery to clear out the vegetation.  

I have attached a before and after photos, even though my work continues.

 

These Photos were taken before it had been cleared. 

 

 

 

 

 

I originally went to this cemetery to obtain a photo of Tempy and Elijah Barger headstones through a request made on find a grave website.  The owner’s of the property gave me a tour, showing me the old home site location, the well they dug for water, and where the fence line was anchored on an oak tree.  They also told me about an old French Trading Post that was located at the west end of the property. These pictures are below.

 

 

 

 

 

These photos were taken after it had been cleared some.  

If anyone has information about this Cemetery please let me know.  Thank you Janey Kaiser
