Bio and Links
Bio Photo I love to scrapbook, and I have been working on family genealogy for almost 10 years. I am a single mom with a special needs adopted daughter. As such I am not on the computer all the time, I will get to edits as I get to the computer.

I live in Bloomington, IN, and I am willing to help get photos of graves in Monroe CO, IN.

Zip codes include 47401, 47402, 47403, 47404, 47407, 47408, and 47429.

The cemeteries near me are Clear Creek, Duncan, Rose Hill, Valhalla, and others.

I am researching Carter, Barger, Branton, Harris, Pierce.

I have not had a computer of my own for several months. As I have access, I will get to edits, please be patient.

Please follow Find a Grave guidelines about obituaries. I may or may not use them as per rules. Please don't get angry with me if I choose to follow rules and not post an obit with the names of living individuals.

John Cathcart
Henry Poling/Pollard Cathcart gravestone location
Hello Scrappinmom19

I was doing research trying to clear up some confusion as to Henry Poling/Pollard Cathcart's lineage and burial location. It would appear that you have based the data regarding his burial on the photo you provided in your memorial. However, there are three Friendship Baptist Church Cemeteries in and around Spartanburg, South Carolina: 1) Lydia—the location of your Memorial, 2) Pauline, and 3) on 250 Morning Drive in Spartanburg city.

Please have a look at this Memorial: GRid=88996213

Although the initials on the stone were transcribed as "EP Cathcart," (by Jimmy) you can make out the death date (which is the same as the one in your memorial). A better photo of the gravestone will certainly be required, but do you think it possible that the above memorial was transcribed in error and is in fact the same as the one you posted?

There are other reasons to suspect that Henry was in fact buried in Pauline cemetery:

1. his death certificate indicates that he died in Glenn Springs, which is very close to Pauline.
2. He was enumerated (along with his second wife, Olivia) in Glenn Springs in the 1910 census.
3. There are no other Cathcarts listed on buried at the Friendship Baptist Church Cemetery in Lyman, while there are many in Pauline.

If you're interested--and especially if you are related to this line--I've created a page for Henry to try and collect data in order to tie him to his ancestors. I'm doing this as part of my duties as administrator of a Cathcart yDNA study. So far, Henry's parents remain a mystery! Here's the link:

Thanks for your consideration.

If you dont have any personal connection would you mind transferring the memorial for Dewey H Day to me. He was my Great Uncle, you posting his memorial was the only way I could find the date he passed away. Thank you, Laura Gragg-47496857

Phillip Wayne Gifford died on the same day as his wife, Linnie Belle Koons. Phillip died in the hospital and Linnie a few hours later.

John M. Davis
Hi! Just wanted to let you know that John M. Davis, born in 1884 and died in 1973 is my grandfather, and he is not buried at Valhalla. He is at Clear Creek Cemetary. There is a correct post on him showing his headstone at Clear Creek on also. Thank you! Jill

Wandley's name is Dow Wandley Burch. He was my grandfather's brother and I knew him well. Could you please correct this?

At Valhalla Memorial Gardens, I would like to have their memorials transferred to me, if this is not possible I would at least like to have Shirley's or you can put her Obituary on the Memorial.
Thanks, Diana
