Members of the Rossiter American Legion discovered a very old cemetery hidden deep in the woods in the Johnsonburg area.

Named the Sherman Farm Cemetery, it contains a dozen graves, with a few hidden by overgrown weeds.

Buried in the cemetery are two veterans, one who fought in the Revolutionary War and the other in the Civil War.

Pictured are members of the Rossiter Veterans Club with the new sign pointing the way to the hidden treasure: (from left) John Mack, George Senott, John Woods Jr. (kneeling) and Robert Deahl.
