Bishops to Bootleggers

Researched and written by the Cemetery Committee of HMI

"Resurrection Cemetery is the final resting place of many individuals who have made our city, state, and world special. The themes illustrated by their lives-religion, immigration, bootlegging, the tragedy of war-are like strands woven into the rich tapestry that is the history of Madison...Burial patterns within the cemetery are fascinating, strongly influenced by religion, parish boundaries, and country of birth...

Four chapters deal with historical themes and events. Two chapters focus on special individuals, Annie Lemberger and the mysterious Barney Lantry. [from "Preface"]
