Randolph Cemetery Tour, May 5, 2012

Our first Randolph Township Cemetery Tour on May 5, 2012, was a success with 39 persons attending and fabulous weather.  It made for a memorable day.  Much gratitude and thanks go to the Randolph Township Cemetery Board for letting us pursue this venture, The Full Gospel Tabernacle Church for the use of their bus, Retired Rev. Richard Gray for driving the bus, and Lona Soice and Charlotte O’Dea for all the research and time they devoted to informing and entertaining us with the incredible history in our own backyard.  If you missed this wonderful journey, but would like to read about our adventure, we are selling the brochures for $2.00 to cover our cost of paper.  You can also check out our latest addition about the founder of Randolph Township: Gardner Randolph of Illinois by Jacquelyn Hansen.  This book is available at the library.
