There is a large opening in the Farling Row. This is where the family members who were interred in the old Buchanan City Cemetery, now Kathryn Park, are now buried together in one grave. This was done when the city closed the old cemetery and opened Oak Ridge Cemetery. These are the family members in this plot that are known to this date:
Elizabeth
and baby
others?

Amos Farling was from Buchanan Michigan. He wrote a book in 1874 "Life in the Army" and the Bentley Library at Michigan State has a copy.

George Farling died March 22 1858 and his wife Francis/Fanny who died Sept. 20 1860 were moved from the Kathryn Park Cem. in Buchanan to the Portage Prairie Cem. by their son Amos Farling.
