We are meeting at the Mount Kelly Cemetery, Dearborn, Michigan for the tour.  The tour starts at 1:30 pm. Please arrive before that time.  Mount Kelly Cemetery is a beautiful historic cemetery located situated on 3.5 acres in a lovely, quiet, tree-lined neighborhood. The tranquility of the cemetery is enhanced by the statuary and the lovely flower beds scattered throughout the grounds. The grounds were donated in 1858 by William and Mary Daly, the grandparents of Edwin W. Daly, a supervisor of Dearborn Township. The first burial was that of Rev. Patrick O'Kelley, the pastor of St. John's Church which is now Sacred Heart Church.  (Cemetery Website)
