Headstones and History

The Irish have always loved a good story, and in a prairie town begun by Irish settlers, a few of those good stories are sure to be found at the local cemetery. Instructor Natalie Butterfield will draw on insider knowledge, with family going back 140 years here, to share “the stories behind the stones” at the historic O’Neill Cemetery. Besides answering general questions like “What’s with those concrete tree trunks?”, you will hear tales of heroism, hilarity, and undying love. Meet men who risked their lives in dedication to duty, like William Froelich, the remarkable Kearns brothers, and hear of a blood feud that lasted beyond the grave. Learn of the saintly Monsignor, Michael Cassidy, and of the Angel of Corregidor, along with rebels, renegades, and ordinary people enduring extraordinary events. You will gain a deeper knowledge of these fascinating personalities and their circumstances, in a way that must be experienced to be understood. This class will meet the first night at the O’Neill Extended Campus, for a discussion and presentation, and will conclude with a walking tour of the cemetery on the second night of the class.
