All Things Peoria - Thursday, June 30, 2022
On today's special episode hosted by WCBU's Tim Shelley, you'll hear about the history surrounding Moffat cemetery on Peoria's South side, which was razed in the 1950s. The rediscovery story of Moffat began with Bob Hoffer's genealogical quest to find out where his wife's great-grandfather was buried. Plus, the story of Nance Legins-Costley, a woman who became first Black person freed from slavery through the efforts of Abraham Lincoln. You'll also hear about how Moffat is the final resting for more than 50 Civil War veterans - including one at the first Juneteenth.
