On Sunday, area families, in observance of Memorial Day weekend, brought flowers and visited with loved ones resting in Milton area cemeteries. The three cemeteries in Milton are: Milton Cemetery, North Janesville Street, founded in 1839; Milton Junction Cemetery, 41 N. John Paul Road, founded in 1849 under the name Rose Hill, and St Mary Cemetery, West High Street, founded in 1903, but some gravestones in the cemetery show epitaphs with dates as early as 1897, according to a history provided by St. Mary Church. 

Following are photos of the cemeteries and holiday activities taken on Sunday, May 24.
