A blog about my interest (obsession) for cemeteries.

Memorial Day 2014

Today my husband and I visited a couple of cemeteries to pay our respects to the family veterans.

I personally want to thank every veteran who served our country in the past and those serving today!  I never take for granted that our freedom was not and is not free, there is a tremendous price paid for that freedom.

West Park Cemetery, Cleveland, Ohio

Edward G. Caughey (1883-1936)

Edward served in the Quartermaster Corps during World War I from 1917 to 1919.
Edward is my second great uncle.

George S. Caughey (1846-1909)

George served in the Civil War for the Union in the 193 Pennsylvania Infantry in 1861.
George is Edward's father and my second great grandfather.
