Harry Wilt
I see your photo request in Memorial Park Cemetery I see someone has already attempted to find the marker and was unable to do so. I searched the Shelby County Register of Deeds. I found an Infant Wilt who is the child of Harry E Wilt and Virginia Payne. The child was male and stillborn on 4/27/1919 in Shelby County, Tennessee. Interment was on 4/30/1919 in Newborn, Dyer, Tennessee. I didn't find a memorial on findagrave. Thanks, Kathy

Re: No Wilt's @ Schwartz

I talked w/ Roy, (my former mailman).
He said no Wilt Family are interred at that cemetery. He gave me a lead to ck. at the Orbisonia Cem. (near the flag pole). Said a county book dated from the 1970's lists Wilt's buried there. Will check it out. OK. Michael

re: view @ Schwartz
Hi again, Joyce.

Just letting you know some info. When you zoom in on Google Earth at the Schwartz Cem., at the flag location,( look to the right of the flag), That bulge into the field IS the cemetery. It can be seen from the road. Looks to be 5 to 8 graves there. The reason for the posted ground is due to a yearly festival that draws 90,000+ ppl, which the farm borders. I believe the farmer is just protecting his crops & livelyhood.

Till I talk to the rural carrier,
Yours, Michael

Re: Tresspassing Issues @ Schwartz
Hi Joyce,

Getting back to you,..The Schwartz cemetery is a rather touchy place in that section. It is in farmland off of McClure Rd. Now, the problem is, once you drive up the road and it starts to bent, it all becomes "posted" ground. This includes both sides of the road for more than a mile. Once you near the treeline of the Schwartz Cem. , "No Tresspassing" signs are every 40 feet apart. So, I will talk to my former rural mailman, a good man who is trusted on many switchback roads. He may have a repore w/ the land owners.

I'll be in touch. Michael

Can you give me directions to this cemetery? I will take the pics if I can find the cemetery. It is one that I have never heard of so any assistance in finding it will be appreciated. Thanks, Cheryl
