My name is Derek A. Chambers. I am currently in the process of purchasing the property known as Underwood Memorial Chapel. A trustee currently is holding the property for me. It is my goal to get the chapel on the historic registery. I am a stained glass artist. I have worked on the Wisconsin State Capital restoration project and churches all over the United States and have done work overseas. As part of this Underwood Memorial Chapel process I would like to document any history that I can find to preserve as much as I can. You can see pictures of my work and pictures of the exterior and inside of the chapel as of the date I took over "ownership". To date I have not been able to find any pictures of the interior. It looks like there may have been a wall taken out in the chapel area? I would love to have the family involved in this process. This is your family history. Please understand that this is for history reasons and NEVER for financial reasons. One of the things I would like to do is to reinstall the orginal flag pole on the property. It is still here. Since the Boy Scouts got their start at the chapel I am hoping to have them raise the first flag in July 2012, the 100th anniversary of the chapel. Is there anyone in the Wausau area that visits Jarvis's grave site? I have been interested in "adopting a grandparent" by adopting an unattended grave. I feel that adopting Javis's grave would be the perfect one. Hope to here from you soon. Take care.

Artfully Derek
