|Bio and Links|
I am a third generation funeral director in Greensburg, Indiana. I have done research on my family tree. I have placed all individuals in our funeral records dating back to 1886 on the find-a-grave website.|
I would like to thank Russell Wilhoit for all his efforts in recording the burials at South Park Cemetery up until 1924 on spreadsheet. I would also like to thank Greg Meyer for all his work in documenting burials in several cemeteries in Decatur County. I have used their information for many of the memorials in which I have placed on Find-a-grave.

Thanks for the quick response in adding the biography to Johannes' memorial. I'll be sending you more info on some of his other family members to add to their memorials in the near future. I appreciate your help.

I don't know if you know that I visited many cemeteries in Decatur Co. for the first time last Sept. and I have started a Facebook page, accessible as Instomer Pioneers, or In St Omer Pioneer Continuity. In addition for serving as a study of the legacy of the pioneers in the tri-corner of Decatur, Rush and Shelby Cos., IN, I am hoping it will raise consciousness (more so into the Spring and Summer) of the needs of those who maintenance the public pioneer cemeteries in that area, including what types of supplies are needed to really clean old gravestones, how much volunteer help is needed and when, and preferred methods of support, and where to direct funding to Russell Wilhoit, who has agreed to check in from time to time and be an associate admin with me on the page. Anyone can post there on topic. If you would be interested in participating there, that would be alright with me. Meantime, if you know persons interested in this subject, feel free to advise them of this Facebook page.
I was recently hacked and I think it came through my FindaGrave login; others of my contacts were reached and that seemed to be the likely source. I have changed my password on FindaGrave; that was the advice I received. Evidently there is major malware of this type going around. I also have a number of antiviruses taking turns cleaning spyware and such out. This behavior scares people away from FindaGrave, and that is too bad.
Thank you for all of the work you have put into identifying graves and matching records to graves. I was struck that I was too late in many cases in arriving on the scene as so many stones are blackened with lichen residue these past 50 years or so, I think, as that is when the generation ended that still tended the graves.
I would like to develop a discussion on whether it is feasible to making these cemeteries self-sustaining in anyway, by possibly looking at green burials, or adding a place for cremated remains, and whether it is feasible to develop stone fencing and such as that.
