Doug Phelps, Brent Willoughby and the historical Gadsden flag
MANCHESTER, KY (July 31, 2022) ClayCoNews Commentary - In the attached video you will see and hear the opinions and comments of two gentlemen who continue to document the demise of the Hoskins Cemetery.
Doug Phelps is a true amateur historian who donates his time and money preserving cemeteries and the headstones within them. His dedication to this cause has even led to the discovery of multiple graves not contained within cemeteries, the locating of cemeteries thought forgotten and the research and implementation of practices used to properly document earlier generations so that future generations may benefit.
Brent Willoughby is a disabled veteran who has interests in the law, journalism, biblical studies and military history. He donates his time to various causes in an attempt to pay respect to those service members who paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms. Lest we forget.
