TELEGRAM ON GRAVE REMOVAL - June 28, 1923
Sent by Western Union Telegraph Company – June 28, 1923 – from Hayward, Wisconsin, by Byron A. Sharp, Superintendent
TO: Indian Office
Refer Office wire today relative grave removal. Deed executed by Oja-wash-ko-ge-jig Jr. conveying this cemetery site to the Right Reverend Joseph G. Pinten by the Department on June 19. Title now being in the Bishop would seem to require further negotiation be carried on with him. The Bishop has already protested against the removal of these graves. I am today taking the matter up with the Power Company and the Bishop. Full report will follow.
