Yes it is always a shame when no stone can be found. Out of 9 graves I was looking for that day in the same cemetery, 5 didn't have headstones. I went back in the office to have someone go with me to those sites just to verify there weren't any. Do you know if your great uncle was a veteran? If he was, he is entitled to a free one. Just a thought.

You ask, "Does anyone take care of the cemetery? Looks like it needs some upkeep."
Greenwood Hills was originally a Masonic cemetery but was abandoned in the 1980s. In the last few years, a board of volunteers formed. Upkeep is 100% dependent on donations and volunteer labor. The grass gets mowed but there's little or no upkeep of the individual markers other than by family, and hundreds of markers are grown over. I'm glad I could give you a little glimpse of Mr. Finger's stone.

The census taker could only write down what he or she was told. I have seen lots of census records with wrong info. She was probably either separated or divorced, but widowed was more acceptable, especially back then.

No there was no wife on the reverse side of the marker or adjacent marker.

I am from Unionville. The cemetery is only about 7 miles from my house. I actually took a picture of Clara's marker. If you want to make a request for hers and the rest, I will see about getting them for you.

hi, I too, went on a search for Mary Finger. Many of the graves are simply unreadable. I spoke with the caretaker and saw the book Trish mentioned. Mary is listed as next to Charles in the book but I cannot identify which one is hers. The cemetary is currently getting a new gate, and maybe that means oneday the entire cemetary will get a facelift. I dont know why Trish hasnt been on findagrave in awhile but just wanted to write you this note.

I just finished adding all the names to the Eagles section of the Clay Street Cemetery and Mary was not listed. There are four unknown graves there and three of them are next to Charles grave one being next to him. It would be my guess that could be her grave. It was unmarked back in 1963 when they last did a survey of the cemetery.
I spoke with the care taker when I was at the last City Counsel meeting and he said he has the original books from the cemetery I maybe able to find out from him if she is buried next to Charles. I just don't know when I am going to have the time to meet with him and go through the books.

I am going to try to make it over to the cemetery this weekend and take the picture of Charles's grave for you if there is a marker left.
This will give me a chance to take more pictures while I am there also.

The information I found for Charles and Mary came from census records on Ancestry.com and newspaper articles on newspaperarchive.com
You maybe be able to find more information on them at newspaper archives online also.
I am working on entering names into the cemetery before the grave markers are lost to time. I have been doing this from the last survey of the cemetery in 1962.
