My wife's family has a cemetery in the LBL. On the third Sunday in May each year we have the annual homecoming at the cemetery. First hour or so is talking family, catching up on what's been going on, etc., then the food comes out! Never seen that much food in a cemetery before! lol Used to have 125 or so there, but, like most reunions, as the older family members die, not too many of the younger ones come back each year.

Hmmm. You know the British commander who whipped the Kentuckians at Blue Licks was William Caldwell, he was from Ireland. His half-Pottawatami son Billy used to own a lot of what's now Chicago and a neighborhood on the North Side is named after him.
