Cornell native digs into cemetery history
The Cornell Cemetery sits on a triangle of land just west of town where State Highway 178 and State Highway 64 meet. You may have driven by it any number of times and wondered what its story was.
Now, thanks to Doug and Mary (Flood) Carlson, Eau Claire, that history will be brought to life.
“Mary is interested in documenting the history of that cemetery,” said Doug, adding that his wife grew up in Cornell, and has strong roots and connections to the town. “Her parents and family are all buried [there]…Over the years, she’s been very interested in helping with history and documentation.”
