We visited the Mount Pleasant Cemetery when we were in Florida in January. Very interesting. We found out about the Cemetery when we visited the St. Cloud Veterans Memorial Library. The ladies at the Library were very friendly and informative. We enjoyed our visit.

Our thanks to you for your work in remembering our Veterans.

Some time, possibly in the 20's, my husband's father, Russell Gilgen, came to Narcoossee with his father, John Gilgen and his grandfather, Frederich Gilgen. We assume they rented either a house or stayed in a fish camp.We don't know how long they were there, but think it might have been several years. Do you know where we might find out where they stayed?
