Beimel shares info on grave markers, chapel

February 2, 2014

When entering St. Mary's Catholic Cemetery though the entrance nearest the chapel, one of the first graves one sees belongs to a Smith. 
"I can't quite explain that," said local historian Ray Beimel, remarking on the irony given the strong German history of the community. 
Beimel provided attendees on a tour of the facility with several interesting facts related to the cemetery in addition to pointing out the Smith grave. 
One of the first things he explained was why a number of the graves throughout the cemetery are in disrepair.
