"Update on Shannon Cemetery Burials:
"The Friends of Shannon Cemetery have documented 70 names, from various documented sources, of those buried at Shannon Cemetery. 41 of these names identified with row and plot numbers. 43 graves stones we have been told are in storage. Four of those stones are from Veterans, one militia captain, two civil war veterans and an American Revolutionary War veteran. We also have a letter which was in the Boehr file that states that another civil war veteran who served with his great grandfather's civil war unit is buried in Shannon, still looking for more confirmation and research on that name. We have the G.P.S. coordinates of 43 stones, we have identified 16 graves and 6 rows with a sample Ground Penetrating Radar Scan. We have known burials in all 12 rows, we can reestablish the 12 rows, A full G.P.R. scan of the cemetery is proposed. Its time that these pioneers, veterans, founders of the Shannon community and all those buried in Shannon Cemetery get the respect they earned and deserve. Bring these grave stones back to the cemetery and put them back on their graves. Why would anyone want anything less?"
