The Montfort VFW will honor Bosmon Clifton for his service in the War of 1812. The service will be held at 10:00 AM on Memorial Day, May 27th, 2019 at Bosmon’s grave site near the Rock Church in the Rock Church Cemetery. Buried next to Bosmon is his wife Sarah (Zumwalt) Clifton and their young daughter, Mary. It was the death of Mary that caused Bosmon and Sarah to donate 1 ½ acres for a cemetery and a site to build a church.
Roger Knutson and LaVerne Clifton are pictured standing next to the graves of Bosmon and Sarah Clifton. Bosmon is the Great-Great-Great Grandfather of LaVerne Clifton.
