The "Etched in Stone" Cemetery Walk in Sycamore has been rescheduled for Sunday.
The "Etched in Stone" Cemetery Walk in Sycamore has been rescheduled for Sunday.

“Etched in Stone,” the DeKalb County History Center’s annual Heritage Cemetery Walk, has been rescheduled for Sunday.

The original date was rained out.

“This is always one of our most popular programs,” Michelle Donahoe, executive director of the DeKalb County History Center, said in a news release. “The cemetery walk is always a great way to learn about little-known stories in Sycamore’s history,”

This year, the Sons of Union Veterans partnered with the history center. They researched and selected the individuals they will be presenting during the cemetery walk. This year’s highlights include Linus Holcomb, 1st Sgt. Company A. 105th; Reuben Holcomb, longtime sheriff and Civil War veteran; Peter Lloyd Pratt 1874-1913, president of the U.S. Naval Academy Class of 1897; Elias West, Civil War veteran; Ella West, wife of Elias and prominent resident; A.J. Blanchard, Civil War captain and superintendent of Sycamore schools; Charles Boynton, prominent resident; and Abram Ellwood Jr. mayor of Sycamore.

The cemetery walk will start at 1 p.m. at Elmwood Cemetery in Sycamore. The program will begin at the mourning house. The suggested donation is $5 a person.
