RE: Childers and Central State Cemetery
It was done in the early 60's and nobody would fess up. The really sad fact is there are no records to locate the graves. The city of Louisville did the same thing to Western Cem. Lots of broken hearts in both cases.

It is in Tom Sawyer State park in SEastern Jefferson County. Find the entrance to the "root cellar", the softball fields and the bmx course, drive all the way back and park by the root cellar building. Then take about a 200 yard walk on the walking path until you get to the fence and the informative sign. You do know there is nothing there but a fenced in empty field? I do have relatives there from both sides of my family, and have walked the field- you know.. just because. In case you do not know, the state is the entity that bulldozed all the markers from the site.

Need confirmation of this gravestone. It appears to me that the stone pictured on this memorial is a duplicate of another grave in a different cemetery. I have requested a photo volunteer to go photograph the grave. I would almost bet this original grave had no dates and some well-meaning person stole the picture off the other memorial and added to this persons memorial. Then, with a picture as confirmation of dates, that was added to the memorial.

This original grave may have been an infant with no dates. That sort of thing happened a lot in these old graveyards.

There are so many people with same or similar names and some "researchers" are very quick to jump to conclusions.

Things like this are the reason I take such care to verify before making changes. I know it angers some who would prefer shortcuts and immediate action.

I will let you know what I find out. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.
