VETERANS BURIED AT BETHEL UNITED CEMETERY IN MINDEN
(Please note that the Haliburton Legion only has a database for the Evergreen and St. Anthony's RC Cemeteries)
Anne Dunec placed two crosses of her parent's grave site. Both Marjorie and Melvin Robertson were veterans in WWII
If you have a relative that is a veteran but is not on my list at the Evergreen or St. Anthony's RC Cemetery, please email Linda Heeps at email@example.com with a name, location of plot, photo of tombstone if possible, birth and death date, some information of their service and I will include them in next year's Veteran Decoration Day event.
