Historic Pioneer Cemetery Restored

A stirring rededication ceremony took place the afternoon of Sunday, September 27, 2009, at historic Cady Cemetery in Palatine Township.  Cady Cemetery is one of five pioneer cemeteries Palatine Township maintains.

Richard Jackson’s Eagle Scout project started the restoration process earlier this year by clearing brush and debris as well as up righting and securing several fallen headstones.  Shortly after the completion of the Eagle Scout project a group of dedicated volunteers from the Clarinda Cady Questers, led by Jeanne Pavlica, raised funds to purchase and install a beautiful new wrought iron fence.

The rededication ceremony recognized the efforts of these groups as well as the entire community.  Scout Troop 188 presented our Nation’s Colors and led everyone in the Pledge of Allegiance.  Connie Rawa, from the Palatine Historical Society, noted in her talk that 5 Veterans of the Civil War are buried at Cady Cemetery.  This was followed by the Sons of the Union Veterans of the Civil War firing off a three-round ceremonial cannon salute.  Everyone was very impressed with the pageantry.  Local Pastor Brian Flowers gave a blessing of the sacred ground.  American Legion Post 690 then fired off a 21 gun salute, which was immediately followed by the playing of Taps by Palatine High School Senior Tyler Koebernick.

A neighbor to Cady Cemetery summed it up best by saying, “You can certainly be very proud of the work that you and the Questers are doing there.  I was honored to be a guest.

Our neighborhood is fortunate to have such a beautiful piece of history in our backyard.  Thank you for your hard work and dedication to this project.”
