Gone and Forgotten?

In 1907, 27 miners were killed in an explosion in the Naomi Mine in Fayette City, Washington County. Those miners were buried in the Mt. Aubern Cemetery on the top of the hill in Fayette City. They are interred in a special section with a dedication marker to those who lost their lives in the disaster over a century ago. Unfortunately that section, as with much of the rest of the cemetery, is seemingly forgotten. It is very much overgrown, markers and headstones have fallen, are broken and in disrepair.

More on this to come...
