Join us, as friends and members of the DeKalb County Indiana Genealogy Society portray various residents or relatives of residents of the cemetery.
Hear about the United States commissioning an airship or blimp from England to be delivered to the United States. While being tested in England, it blew up with 44 people dying. Lloyd Crowl was one of the American serviceman that were killed.

Pioneer Settlers Application
Our DeKalb County ancestors made it happen.
Some traveled many rough miles to get here while others were born in DeKalb County. They cleared the land, built roads and houses, planted and harvested the first crops.
If your direct descendant lived in DeKalb County prior to December 31, 1850, you may apply for a Pioneer Certificate.
