I wasn't aware of your request before making an unplanned stop at this cemetery when I came across it. So it is just luck that I have the pic that you were needing. I do have closeups of the stone, that I took in three or more sections. If you would like I can email you all the ones that I have of the stone. My email is

RE: family
I do miss grandma and grandpa so much!! I was in the hospital when grandma passed away and did not even get to say goodby and she was right here in Indianapolis and I missed out on a lot because of having to work so much. The Memorial pages keep me in tune with the latest and I go back to them quite often.
Thanks again!!!

Aunt Bernice and Uncle Max Memorial pages
Would you mind transferring the Houser memorial pages to me that you have done please? This is my family and I am writing and am working with a publisher to get this task accomplished and would love nothing better than to put more of the information on the headstones and let the publisher take pictures of the pictures if you will allow us to do that for my series of books Malinda!! I sure would appreciate that from the bottom of my heart!!!!!!

RE: Shafers
I searched the cemetery records for a Clyde or Clide Shafer and found nothing. There are 22 Swans buried there so I would need a first name or death date to go further. None of the Swans are in the same block as Ira Shafer. If you can give me more information, I would be happy to search for you.

You Are Welcome
I also do family research and your Robert's stone was found by my granddaughter. I was teaching her how to, as I refer to it, be a head hunter, your Robert was her first find.
The best I can describe where his stone is to use the entrance nearest the church, go up the hill and when you come to where several smaller lanes branch off just to your left will be a small spot (almost teardroped shaped) and the lanes wrap around it. His stone is right next to the lane on the northwest corner. So it is easy to miss. Good like with your family research.
