Dedication ceremony for War of 1812 vets

WYANET — A special dedication at the Forest Hill Cemetery in Wyanet is planned for next spring for five War of 1812 veterans buried in the Wyanet cemetery. Those veterans are John Blake, Joseph Sparks, Townsend Fletcher, William Frankeberger and Frost Swartout.

All descendants of those veterans are invited to attend the dedication ceremony. Descendants are encouraged to contact Clark Larson so biographical sketches can be prepared for each veteran. Larson can be contacted at 815-875-4127.
