Bio and Links
Bio Photo Falls Cemetery is privately owned and was platted in 1861. It has expanded and grown to 67 acres situated on a beautiful, rolling hills landscape. Hundreds of pioneer and founding family members are interred, including those from the Hanna Cemetery relocated in 1907. Honored interred veterans include over 330 from the Civil War, plus hundreds from the War of 1812, Mexican-American and Spanish-American Wars, World Wars I and II, Korean conflict, Viet Nam and subsequent wars.

The Friends of Falls Cemetery was organized in August 2009 consisting of Wabash area residents who are largely descendants of the 13,000+ souls interred. It was officially sanctioned and its work approved and encouraged by the Wabash Cemetery Society, Inc. board of directors on November 17, 2009.

It is our goal to accurately and respectfully document the lives and relationships of those interred in Falls Cemetery. We further strive to present them in the best possible manner with biographies, histories and obituaries whenever possible, and will include plot locations and attractive tombstone photography. Additions and corrections to these memorials are welcome as are new participants in our group. Upon request, we will gladly transfer memorials to family members, and will give consideration to out-of-guideline relationships. Existing FindAGrave memorials may be (temporarily) transferred to us for research and photography.

RE: Hazel Alberson
Thank you very much for changing her information. Her name was Hazel Gertrude Wyer Alberson if you want to fix her name. Thank you for all your work and help. Gary.

Hi Susan,
I found a better(more clear) newspaper print obit for her; unsure of whether I should post it since yours was already there. Let me know if you would like me to remove it.

Jessie Gunder Rhodes Gray Memorial # 51103156
Jessie was the daughter of George W. Gunter (memorial # 52711977) and Jessie L. Rhodes (memorial # 33520874). Her mother died when she was just 7 months old. The 1900 census shows her the adopted daughter of her grandmother Sarah (Chamness) Rhodes.
