Looking Back 77 Years Ago-- Part 1: A Grave Situation in the Cemetery

From the October 15, 2014, MidWeek "Looking Back."

75 years Ago, October 18, 1939.

**  "Sixteen mammoth grotesque heads for as many boys, who will wear them in the Halloween night parade on October 31, are being made in the crafts room of the community center."  (Even before they had the annual Pumpkin festival in Sycamore.)

**  "Suit filed by Harvey Peavey, claims to have purchased the south half of a lot in Kingston Cemetery several years ago and buried his wife there.

"Last spring it was claimed that Edward Brown was buried in the same grave, placing the casket above the one containing Mrs. Peavey."
