Rex "Dog" Dimick
Birth: unknown
Death: 1878

Special permission was given for this dog to be buried there in 1878. O.J. and H.S. Dimick owned the dog and their children, Eddie and Josie, died of diphtheria on the same day, at the ages of five and nine ...October 22nd, 1878.

After the death of the children, the dog came every day to the cemetery and sat by the grave from dawn to dusk, mourning for the children.

After the death of the dog, a monument was erected next to the children's graves (and he may be buried there). There is no name of the dog on the marker, but the dog is known by cemetery employees as "Rex."

Eddie and Josie:
Their memorial numbers are 15495619 and 15495653
