Another Lyman Township Soldier Dies

A message was received Saturday stating that Roy McNaught, an aviator in the U.S. army, had been killed by a collision of two planes on a Texas field where he was stationed. Mr. McNaught was a Lyman township boy, having lived nearly all his life on a farm in section one. His many friends here join the family in sorrow. He has been in the aviation service for some time and was assisting in guarding the Mexican border.

First Cemetery

The first cemetery in Lyman Township was on the Forbes farm (Now the Charles Dietterle farm). Quite a number of the early settlers were buried there.

Does anyone know the location of this cemetery? Are there still stones?
