Bones Removed

Last Monday, the bones of the four men who were killed in 1864 and buried near George LIGON's were taken up and brought to Madisonville and interred in the Odd Fellow's cemetery. Their bones were all put in different boxes and then all interred in the same grave. There were several Confederate buttons found in the graves and these are being kept as mementos. It is understood that one of the men was named ALDRICH and one was McCORDWELL. The names of the other two are unknown.
