Info of those buried at Clinton is requested

It is not about restoring what can’t be restored but to keep in memory of those who lived and died at the first county seat of DeWitt County, Clinton.

In 1985 the DeWitt County Historical Commission took it upon themselves to identify as many of the gravesides at the old Clinton cemetery. Most of the gravesides were identified. However, since then very few headstones exist. Many have disappeared or were destroyed. Iron fences, that surrounded the graveside, some are no longer present. Others have been disassembled, some with gates missing. 
 
Peggy Ledbetter, DCHC representative said, “There are many cemeteries like this but this was a city cemetery [that generated funds to maintain the cemetery].”
 
Since the city of Clinton no longer exists there are no funds to maintain the old cemetery.

Cuero Tree Board organizes educational tree workshops

 

With National Arbor Day coming up on Friday, April 25, it’s a good time to recognize the City of Cuero for its commitment to promoting and maintaining trees.
 
In 2012 Cuero was named a Tree City USA by the Arbor Day Foundation, in honor of its commitment to effective urban forest management. In the fall of 2013 Cuero earned the national designation again, for the second year.
 
Cuero maintained Tree City USA recognition by meeting the program’s four requirements: a tree board or department, a tree-care ordinance, an annual community forestry budget of at least $2 per capita and an Arbor Day observance and proclamation.
