Dan Cruson: Easton history revealed through its cemeteries Will be guest speaker at CFE’s annual meeting


Dan Cruson, celebrated historian, scholar, writer and teacher, will be the guest speaker at CFE’s annual meeting,Wednesday, May 18, at 7:30 p.m. at the Easton Public Library.

Author of “Redding and Easton,” as well as many historical explorations of Newtown and environs, Cruson will “show and tell” many historical oddities and facts about Easton’s cemeteries.

As he has noted, “I’m always looking for things that people might not know.”

To that end, his presentation will unearth local cemeteries and reveal how our 18th century forefathers lived and died. He’ll explore the origins and meanings of local grave markers and traditions about death and dying. The evening will include a slide show and question and answer session.

Cruson will also sell and sign books. Refreshments will be served.

It promises to be an evening of mystery and myth … And perhaps the legend of the White Lady will be explained.
