Tombstone Thursday and Doug Breen

Eleanor Tyler 1869 to 1946, at the old Monie Churchyard cemetery

It is only recently that I heard of Doug Breen passing.  Doug was a "Come Here" who took an active part in the historical aspect of  Laurel and the surrounding area.  He explored and documented a large number of cemeteries in the area so I think it is only proper to speak of him on Tombstone Thursday.    He wrote three cemetery books, was active in the opening of the Heritage Museum in Laurel, was a past president of the Laurel Historical Society, and a husband and father.  Cancer finally took him at age 67.    His accomplishments were many and he will be missed.
