Can't believe they achieved a Railroad
Crossing for this cemetery. Gotta drive through the grass to get to it. I knocked on a few doors to find it when
I went looking on 26 May 2012. A lady said "there's an old cemetery behind the cemetery across the road, on
the other side of the tracks, but I don't know the name of it. I think they just put a sign on it yesterday."
Now I've looked for the Union-Throne Cemetery several times over the years, and never found it. So this is probably
my last try, and they put a sign on it the day before I went looking. Wadya think about that? (Don't know the
name of the cemetery in front of it. The church is boarded up, and has no name on it.)
Here are some overall views . . .
Peter Aquila Poorman, my Great-Great-Great Grandpa . . .
I didn't see a stone for my great-great grandpa, Joseph P. Poorman - or
my great grandpa Robert Curtin Poorman. They are both buried in Union-Throne also. If I get to go back, I'll take
a harder look.
One of Peter & Lydia's sons, Washington Poorman and wife Mary E . . .
John S. Poorman (not my Grandfather) and wife Blanche . . .
Now this was interesting to me.
This John S. Poorman above is not my grandfather John Sylvester Poorman. This one was married to my 6th grade teacher
at Castanea Elementery School, Mrs. Blanche Poorman. His name is engraved on the Veterans Monument (below) in the cemetery
in front of Union-Throne Cemetery. He was in the First World War.
