AFTON CEMETERY
Afton Township of Dekalb County, IL.

In 2009 the Afton Township Supervisors asked Sherrie Martin to record the burials of the cemetery.  In July and August 2009 Sherrie, her husband Terry, Bob Myers and Sue Breese worked on this assignment.  Not only did they record the burials, but they took pictures of each headstone and recorded a GPS location for the grave.  This is something new and has never before been done in DeKalb County.
