We Salute Our Veterans – Buried but not forgotten

The number of men and women who served America from the time of the American Revolutionary War through today’s conflicts and are buried in Mount Olivet Cemetery come close to 1400. Unfortunately, that number continues to grow.

Between October 15, 2015 and October 15, 2016 one woman and 31 men have been interred in our historic cemetery. On Sunday, November 6 beginning at 2:00 PM we will remember each of them with the reading of their names.


Please remember our event on Sunday, November 6 at 2 PM in the Garden of Honor in Mount Olivet Cemetery. We are located at 725 Baltimore Street, Hanover. Come rain or shine, and please bring with you a lawn chair.

In the event you cannot join us on this day Wreaths Across America will be holding their program and placing Christmas wreaths at the grave sites of the veterans. The event is Saturday, December 17 beginning at 11:50 AM and at the same location.

Thank you for reading this week’s blog. Feel free to share with friends.

Friend of Mount Olivet Cemetery

I have a personal connection to Mount Olivet Cemetery, and that started with this tombstone of Ida May Sherman. My research has gone beyond my ancestors to the discovery of the historic mysteries that lie within the cemetery.
