A large DAGG tombstone.

Gus Dagg was never buried in the Dagg cemetery according to my grandfather. Gus Dagg made a point about where he was to be buried years before his death during family dispute about who would be maintaining the cemetery after his death and left instructions for him to be buried at Rosewood.

Often people ask about the non-Dagg's that are buried there and the story regarding them is they were all friends of the family and also friends of friends who did not have the money for a grave. There are a fair number of the same Dagg family that are not buried there-Gus being one and my father Carl Michael Dagg who is buried at the new VA cemetery on the north side.

About the Big Dagg Tombstone in the cemetery is it at the foot of my uncle Lewis Dagg's grave and is actually part of his plot and was put there by my aunt Gladys Dagg a couple of years after his death.
