Kyler Sieber, 17, a Boy Scout with Troop 76 in Mount Union, recently completed his Eagle Scout project. His project was cleaning up the Heister’s Mill cemetery along Little Greenbriar Road in Wayne Township. The cemetery was very overgrown and needed a lot work to enable people to visit and read the gravestones. Brush was removed, trash cleaned up and grass seed was put down. A sign was erected with the name of the cemetery and the date it was created. There are five known graves, including three veterans interred in the cemetery: James Glasgow, William Latherow, Reuben Niece (Mexican American War vet) Willis Copelin (Mexican American War vet) and John Graham (Revolutionary War vet). A ceremony was held on Nov. 5 dedicating the cemetery.
