                                             A  Visit to Four Cemeteries

    Pine River, Bovee, Ash Creek and Mayfield are the names of four cemeteries along county trunk O in the towns of Richland and Orion all within a distance of four miles. In these four burying grounds rest many of the early settlers of the neighborhood.

                                                The Ash Creek Cemetery

    Upon the side hill adjoining the Ash Creek church is the cemetery. Pioneers and the sons and daughters of the pioneers are buried here. There are the Flammes, Sigrists, Jones, Neefes and Hanolds. The cemetery is not large; it is well kept and in it sleep many of the honored citizens of the locality. One of these is Jules Neefe, a veteran of the Civil War; member of the 6th Wisconsin Battery. Mr. Neefe used to entertain the writer of this article with stirring tales of soldier life. Jules lived for many years on the banks of the Wisconsin river near Riverview and there he died.
