RE: Park Cemetery
I know that the location is not from the cemetery records, but until the people holding the cemetery records releases the correct lot & grave locations, it gives people a better idea as to where to look for a family member.

Gerald Rhoades is the person who helped create a chart and assigned sections and that is what I am using for the Section location. It is a start. About all cemeteries are laid-out by Section - plus Lot & Grave location.

I know the cemetery refuses to recognize the chart, but it is available at the Marion library and also on the internet under the website for Grant Co., Cemeteries.

I have talked with the lady at the cemetery on several occasions, and one time was told she was going to have to start charging me to look up burial locations.

That is why I started taking photos by each section and I am using Gerald's chart to determine the section location; at least I know where to start looking when someone submits a photo request.

Maybe in the further the cemetery will make the plot locations available to the library and they can update them to their database like all the other cemeteries in Grant Co., have done.

Hello RMW
By any Chance are you related to Abijah H Osborn?
Abijah Osborn is in the 1930 United States Federal Census. His name on the census is spelled Abrjah Baborn then under it Abrjah Bobom, Both are extremely wrong. He was born in 1849 in Iowa or Wisconsin. His age in 1930 was 81.

Please e-mail me at
even if you are not related to him please let me know. I realy want to know who he was.

Thank you very much

Hi Rhonda,

Transfers made! I wanted to do this for you even though it is not within the guidelines, I have had a hard time just getting direct family transferred to me that is within the guidelines, so I don't always try to be the same as some other contributors in hopes that maybe it will come back around someday.

Have a wonderful day

I didn't mind linking things for you, but I think it is better when family maintains the memorial. I just transferred it to you.
