The concrete is poured, the walls are up, and hopefully, the roof will be installed later this month on the Poyen Veterans Memorial.
Thanks to the efforts of the Poyen Veterans Memorial Committee Inc., the memorial is being built at the Lindsey-Poyen Cemetery on U.S. 270 just east of Poyen. The monument will honor Poyen veterans who have served their country since the Revolutionary War; to date, there are approximately 135 veterans buried there.
Retired Army Lt. Col. Clyde Edward “Eddy” Watson spearheaded the effort to build the memorial.

“We incorporated as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation about five years ago,” Watson said. “We wanted to honor our own veterans who are buried here.”
In addition to Watson, others who organized the corporation are Robert Speer Jr., secretary; Jewell Dean Walker, treasurer; and Paul Walker, president. Watson is chairman of the corporation. Its directors include David Teel, Dennis Roark, James Ralph Nichols and Phillip Roark.
Watson said the committee sponsors two events a year — a 5K race and a car show — to raise funds for the memorial. In addition, the committee receives payment for taking care of the cemetery, which is really two separate cemeteries that are divided by the highway. The older part of the cemetery was founded as the Lindsey Cemetery in 1859; the newer part, the Poyen Cemetery, was founded in 1941.
