Update on Historical Marker in Evergreen Cemetary

As an update to a story I mentioned a couple months ago about an effort to raise funds for a historical marker for the Evergreen Cemetery I received this press release over the weekend:

On Saturday, January 23, a group of Campbell Countians will unveil a new Kentucky Historical Highway Marker on US 27/Alexandria Pike outside the Evergreen Cemetery in Southgate. The marker commemorates the four US Congressmen, including Brent Spence, and one Confederate Congressman from Northern Kentucky who are buried in the historic cemetery.

Money for the marker was raised from friends of the late John Eidemiller and Ray Roberts, US military veterans and well-known community volunteers. The marker will be dedicated in their honor with Mrs. Sue Eidemiller and Mrs. Laura Roberts taking part in the unveiling ceremony.

The program will be emcee’d by State Representative Dennis Keene and will include remarks by committee chair and Kentucky historian Paul Whalen and former Congressman and current Kentucky Commissioner of Veterans Affairs Ken Lucas.

The public is invited to join in this important commemoration of Northern Kentucky history
