Share us:
Bernard Lee Deghand, U.S. Army, 1964-2006





This memorial stands on the southeast corner of the courthouse square in Holton.



His Purple Heart hangs on the memorial.  It's safe there.


Danny John Petersen, U.S. Army, 1949-1970



At rest in the Netawaka Cemetery in the northeast quandrant.



Petersen is honored with this display in the Jackson County Courthouse.



And a portion of U.S. 75 is named in his honor.

These are just two of the many ways veterans are recognized in Jackson County.

A dead ringer in Holton

Holton, Kansas

We were walking around the Holton city cemetery and from the distance we saw a bell on top of a gravestone.  Of course, we had to go check it out.



It was the grave of Lyle Campbell (I don't think he has died yet!).  We took a closer look at the picture in the oval.



Mr. Campbell must have been a telephone operator of some sort.  And that's why the
wording on the bell reads...



...here lies a dead ringer!

Who knew how much humor could be found in a cemetery.

See you down the road, KE #2 Marci Penner
