Gone to they home above
But oh how we miss thee here below
Re-Dedicated August 29, 1998

The marker is located on westbound Maple Avenue, west of its intersection with Forest Home Avenue / County Highway L, Big Bend, next to the property at S101 W24820 Maple Avenue, Wisconsin 53103.

NOTE: This marker is very difficult to locate if traveling westbound on Maple Avenue. From Center Avenue (west of the marker location), head east on Maple Avenue. You will probably notice the steps to the marker before you see the marker (see photos below). Also, there is parking alongside eastbound Maple Avenue; there is no parking available on westbound Maple Avenue.

Because of below zero temperatures at the time of my visit, I did not make the journey to the cemetery location. Click here for a photo of the cemetery from the Find-A-Grave website.

This is what's visible from eastbound Maple Avenue. The marker was not
difficult to find in December with the shrubs / trees bare;
however, it would be quite a challenge otherwise.
