NEW SEXTON FOR GREENWOOD CEMETERY

Source: Alton Evening Telegraph, November 28, 1904

Mr. John Morrison, who has been sexton of Greenwood cemetery for many years, has grown tired of the business and retired in favor of his son, Frank. Frank is a young married man, energetic and industrious, and is a good man for the place, which he will keep in the "spick and span" manner his father did for so long. As soon as his new residence, which Mr. Jacob Yungck is building in the Turner addition, is completed, Mr. John Morrison will occupy it with his family. He is now living in Alton on Belle Street.
