The Marcus Historical Society will be holding its annual Cemetery Walk on Saturday, Oct. 1 beginning at the Marcus-Amherst and Holy Name cemeteries at 6:30 p.m.

From the cemetery they will move to the school commons across the street to continue the program.

The honored families this year are: Peter L. Miller presented by Grandson Gerald Pallesen, The Schmillen and Holck Families presented by Grandson/Grandnephew Ron Schmillen, Harry E. Neir presented by Granddaughter-in-law Ervina Scott, James and Catherine Mulvany presented by Grandson Don Kerr, Thomas and Bridget Delaney presented by Great Granddaughter Jean (Delaney) Nilles, Patrick and Fannie Brady presented by Grandson Dennis Brady.

We also will present information on gravestone symbolism.

The Cemetery Walk was started in 1999 by Nancy Heir, Margaret Dorr and Lulu Grauer.

The Marcus Historical Society took over this event in 2008. The walk is a look at our past through the eyes of descendants of our early Marcus area residents.

They like to honor families that were in the Marcus area approximately 100 years ago or more.

Plan to attend, it is an interesting evening.
