Monday, August 13, 1934

Didn't wash today. It sure was hot. Went out to cemetery with Clara and John and Mrs. Raifert in the evening.

Union Cemetery - Kansas City
Union Cemetery
2815 Walnut Street
Kansas City, MO 64108
Founded in 1857, Union Cemetery, located just south of Crown Center and east of the Liberty Memorial, is the final resting place for many of those who founded and developed the towns of Westport and Kansas City.

The famous and infamous rest here. Veterans from every war from the Revolution to Vietnam are buried here, including those who fought for both sides during the Civil War. And those who lived, worked, raised families and contributed to making the area a great place to live rest here.

The members of the Union Cemetery Historical Society, founded in 1984 as a 501c3 organization play a large part in preserving this historic, hallowed ground
