Tombstone Thursday and Doug Breen
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.
