Scout Digs Up Family History

No, the article by Tyrone Tony Reed Jr in The Jackson Sun (Jackson, Tenn), Scout Digs Up Family History, isn’t about a Boy Scout who got a little overly enthusiastic while doing a genealogy DNA project. It is about a Scout, Trey Climer, who made it his Eagle Scout Project to “restore and repair tombstones in the cemetery behind Denmark Presbyterian Church, which is on the National Register of Historic Places”.

Excerpt from the article:

A mother’s search for the final resting places of distant relatives led her 13-year-old son on a quest to repair and restore 150-year-old tombstones Saturday in a Denmark cemetery.

Allison Climer, of Bells, said it all began with her lifelong interest in genealogy, which caused her son, Trey, a Boy Scout, to also develop an interest.

It’s good to see somebody into genealogy at such an early age.
