Hagers Grove Cemetery
 
Small Midwestern Town
 
 
 
 
     Located on a back country road in this small, Midwestern town, you will find the Hagers Grove Cemetery.  Hagers Grove was first settled in about 1857. At one time, it was a bustling little community, boasting a blacksmith shop, a school, a grocery store, a sawmill, a grinder, a post office, and this church. At one time it even had its own town band! But as times change, so do people, and little by little the inhabitants either moved away or died, and this once thriving community became one where if you blink too many times, you will be through before you know it.
     Located inside the boundaries of this little town, you will find the community church and cemetery. The church was built in 1866 from land donated by John Patton, and materials and labor donated by the local patrons. The first Pastor was Rev. John Tandy. This church has been the site of two weddings, the first in 1894 and than again in 1957. Baptisms were first held in the Salt River, and than later in stock tanks on various family farms. The church was remodeled in 1955.
     Many of the graves in this cemetery have no markers. With some, the markers have fallen over or become dislodged with the shifting of the soil. Many of the stones are no longer readable. Bur for those that are, you can achieve a sense of the history of this small town. Many of the stones represent the founding fathers of this community, and many of the names still live in the area. The grass gets cut, and some flowers are still placed in remembrance. So for at least this current time, these souls are remembered, and their names are not yet forgotten.

 

 
 
Times were hard many years ago. Often, the wife would die and the husband would remarry. And sometimes they all shared the same final resting place.
 
 
And sometimes the husband would die first. Maybe from an accident, or just harsh living conditions. And the wife would remarry. And sometimes all three would rest together for eternity.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
All too often, death takes both a mother and her child.
 
 
 
Celebrating a love that survives past death, her death 21 years after his.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Remembered, even after all these years. An honor for a veteran, this flag represents the country  for which they fought.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Remembering a daughter, lost so many years ago. Losing a child is never easy, especially at such an early age.
 
Glahn was a name very well connected with this town.
 
 
Time does take its toll, and stones start to break apart. Names become harder to read, and finally the elements have the final victory.
 

 
Sometimes love does last forever.
