From the Cedar Valley Times, November 28, 2006: "Genealogy, cemetery bring distant cousins together," by Dean Close, Times Editor.  Pictured are Al Schwartz of Vinton and Robert George of Anamosa, as they placed a plaque on the grave of George's great-great-grandmother, Barbara Rosenberg George, at Carlisle Grove Cemetery north of Garrison.  The cemetery is one of dozens of pioneer cemeteries in Benton County.  Also pictured is a close-up view of the plaque, a larger view of the cemetery, and a picture of a stone that serves as a memorial for six infant siblings who died decades ago.  During George's search for the burial site of his ancestor, he contacted the Benton County Pioneer Cemetery Association of which Schwartz is a member.  The men discovered that they are distant cousins.  Schwartz, who has helped place other markers at Carlisle Grove, also provided some history of the site.
