Column: ‘Honoring Unidentified Veterans in Quaker Cemetery’

For the last five years on the Saturday before Memorial Day, I have helped my grandfather, Glen Inabinet, and many of the members of American Legion Post 17, put out small American flags by the headstones of veterans in Quaker Cemetery.

My grandfather and Mr. Clay Carruth in particular know some very interesting stories that they share as we walk through the cemetery finding veterans' gravestones and adding the flags.

Instead, there is a "Joint Committee on Old Houses," which came about in this way: an old frame residence was bought by two young men of Camden to be converted into a business office, but it was found that under the existing fire district setup, a 12-inch masonry wall was required, which was obviously out of the ...
