Letter: Thanks To Those Who Cleared a Historic Burial Ground in Leonardo
Joanne Peck of Middletown writes about a remarkable improvement in the Applegate Family Cemetery.
To whomever cleared out the small, old cemetery at the corner of Burlington Avenue and Cedar Avenue, thank you!
I've lived in this neighborhood for 30 years and have never had the opportunity to look at the old headstones in this cemetary. Each time I walked by, I thought about how sad and disrespectful it was to the poor souls who rested there to let the cemetary get so overgrown.
So, again, thank you. You did a wonderful job, whoever you are.
