Lois Camp No. 16, Sons of Union Veterans of Minford, met and completed arrangements for Decoration day. The soldiers graves in the Bennett cemetery will be decorated about 10:30 a.m. followed by singing and speaking. The procession will be at Mt. Carmel cemetery about noon where they will eat their lunch.

In the afternoon the cemeteries at White Gravel, Flack's Jenkins
and White's will be visited in the order named. Singing and music by
the Harrisonville drum corps will be a feature at each of the cemeteries.

The last Civil war veteran in Madison township has answered the final roll call,
Comrade Jenkins being the last. Samuel O'Neal, a former resident of this township, is a Civil war veteran and resides in New Boston. He is now almost 90 years old.
