The Godfrey Cemetery Association is looking for ways to spruce up the grounds of the land that hosts the final resting place of Benjamin Godfrey. A representative of the association spoke to the Godfrey Township Board at this week’s meeting, asking if any financial assistance was available towards upkeep and maintenance of the cemetery.
Godfrey Township Supervisor Doug Mueller thinks it is a worthy cause.

From a tourism point of view, Godfrey Mayor Mike McCormick believes the cemetery could be tied in to some of the tours that also features the Lincoln sites around the Riverbend. No decision on monetary donations was made at the meeting, but may be discussed in the future.
