Rick and Janice Ribble of Wisconsin spent a couple of weeks working and cleaning brush at the Mound Cemetery. Marty Patton helped them and found another stone which had not been in the census before. The name was Lydia Mary Mueller, Sept. 26, 1870-May 17, 1882- daughter of Hermann and Mary Mueller. Charles and I helped one afternoon and found a foot stone only with the initials L. B. H. on it. Someone else has been setting and repairing three stones in the cemetery. All help is appreciated. Jason Vickers made a sign for the cemetery which looks very nice. Gary Vickers helped Charles set the posts for the sign.
