Move on Foot to Fence Miller Creek Cemetery

There was a meeting at the Millers’ Creek Cemetery Monday afternoon for the purpose of raising money enough to put a new fence around it, as the old fence is about played out. Not many were present, but we hope that each and everyone will come forward with their dollar.

Places Markers on Schwede Graves

Mrs. Fred Monke has returned to her home in Weinert, Texas, after visiting her relatives, Mrs. Clara Reichert, Mrs. Emil Beken, Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Rahlwes, Mrs. Charles Rahlwes, and friends here.

She also placed markers on the graves of her grandfather and grandmother, the Schwedes, and her sister Christine Schwede, in the Kieler [Miller Creek] Cemetery.

Mr. and Mrs. Conrad Kieler gave the land for the cemetery, part of the Kieler farm. They also were grandparents of Mrs. Monke's. The Schwede and Kieler families were early landowners in the Oak Grove community.
