"Cemeteries Maintained by Indiana Township Trustees"


ERIN McCRACKEN / Courier & Press 15 Nov 2009

"Perry Township Trustee David Mosby picks up branches in Lyon Cemetery near the Tekoppel Avenue underpass on Thursday morning while giving a tour of the cemeteries the township is in charge of maintaining. There are very few headstones in the cemetery, most dating back to the mid to late 1800s. Money is tight and often allocated for other things, Mosby said, so oftentimes there is not money to do much more than cut the grass and simple maintenance in all the cemeteries."
