Biographical Sketches

During the summer of 2014, the Crandon Public Library, in partnership with the Forest County Historical and Genealogical Society, conducted two cemetery tours of the Crandon Lakeside Cemetery.  The biographical sketches, written by local history clerk Amanda Flannery, are published below.  Information for the biographical sketches was taken from a variety of sources including newspaper articles from the Forest Republican archives, oral history interviews and archival records.  All of these materials can be found in our Local History room located in the lower level of the Crandon Public Library.
