=== Farris Cemetery Update ===
Work continues at the Farris Cemetery in Union Township, northeast of Winterset, thanks to Molly Clause, one of Madison County’s Historic Preservation Commissioners. Gravestones, once tossed into a pile, are now back in place. Underground Railroad station master and conductor, James Farris, recently received a replica of his broken 150-year-old gravestone, created by Ben Mayer of benmayercustomcarving.com. Two of Farris' descendants - Rick Breeding of Winterset and Kory Darnall of Davenport - attended an unveiling ceremony at the graveside in mid-August. For more details, see the August 19 Winterset Madisonian.
