On October 2, 2010 the Mikolich family visited from Ontario (Canada) to see the graves of     

their relatives from the 1800's. Grave rubbings were done to make a record of the headstones 

for genealogy research. Mayor Tim McDonough greeted the girls and welcomed them to Hope.

This was the first group of Canadians to come to the cemetery. Many of the Swayzes and their descendents migrated to Canada after they left Hope.  The Mikolich's are the relations of the

Dawdy and Swayze families.
