I got to looking at the photo of the cemetery..
That photo looks like another cemetery on high way 33... then i got to thinking that the cemetery your talking about does not have a white fence around it.. i bet we have the wrong Cemetery.. I will run over tomorrow and ask the people about this.. it is in there front yard. `and they are the ones that take care of it.

It has been few years since i have been to that cemetery. it is just a few miles form my house. The last time i was there i found 2 markers where a grave should be. but never found a headstones..what i can do is call up to the court house and see if the bodies are still in that cemetery or if they were ever moved..i will go out later today and take pictures so you can see what i am talking about.. when i find cemeteries like this make me want to throw up. no body took the time to take care of it..

You are very welcome. I live in FL but go to GA once a year for our family reunion and before I went I wrote down names in the area to try to fulfill. If I see the same last name nearby, yes I try to get those pictures too.

RE: Charles Akright
Jeff: There is a large stone with "Akright" engraved upon is, and Charles' marker/headstone is on the left side. However, I could not find a marker for Pearl, so either there wasn't one placed or it may be sunken into the ground. The area where this is located, the ground riddled with gopher tunnels (as is a lot of the cemetery). If I remember correctly, Charles' marker is settling into the ground. According to the cemetery records, they are buried together but I could not locate a headstone or marker of any type for her grave. I will continue to look and talk to the staff at the cemetery also.

RE: William & Dicy Watson
You are very welcome. Glad we could help out. Always looking for request in our area.

Funny thing, when we got there, parked and walked right to them. We were there maybe 5 minutes. Most of that was talking to another couple looking for graves.

Anyway, any other request in the area, just post them. We'll go find them.

God Bless you.

RE: Abraham Hively & Mary Finley
Jeff, Here is my info on Abraham Hively & Mary Finley. His obituary reads: Abraham Hively, of Richland Township Dies of Hemorrhage. Friday morning about 5 o'clock Abraham Hively of Richland township, residing two and a half miles north east of Larwill, was taken with a hemorrhage of the lungs and in two hours was dead. He had never suffered from lung trouble of that kind as is known, but had been afflicted with Bright's disease and was in poor health. The deceased was 67 ears old Thursday, having been born on Oct 13th, 1831. Mr. Hively was preceded to the grave a few years ago by his wife and one or two children. There still lives three sons, Adam, Charles and Edward, the last named residing upon and working the home farm at the present time. Mr. Hively was a successful farmer and a thoroughly honest and upright, but unpretentious man, who adhered strictly to his ideas of right and justice to ail mankind. He was a good citizen and neighbor who will be missed in the community, township and count.
His funeral was held in the Troy Presbyterian Chruch and burial was in the church cemetery, Troy, Indiana. (Hively News Letter, Vol. 11, pg 2114 and Whitley Co Indiana Obits 1856-1910.

Her obituary in the Columbia City Commercial, May 6, 1896 reads: Mrs. Mary A. Hively whose maiden name was Mary A. Finley was born in Delaware county, Ohio, May 14, 1838. While she was jet a child her parents moved to Troy township, Whitley County. In August 1858, she was married to Abraham Hively at which time she was a resident of Columbia City. To them were born four sons and one daughter, of these three sons remain to lament the loss of a patient and loving mother, while the daughter and one son have preceded her to the eternal rest. She leaves also her husband to mourn the departure of a faithful and loving wife, also one sister, the now sad relict of a once happy family circle. There are also ten little children who will sadly miss the loving words and tender kindness of grandmother. Near the age of 16 she united with the Presbyterian church of Columbia City. Afterward on removal of her country home, she placed her membership in the Troy church, of which she continued a faithful and exemplary member until her decease. The summons came suddenly and unexpected, but she was ready. Smitten as in a moment she passed from the world of death to the world of life. She entered into rest after a warning of only 5 minutes, at 9:30 PM of April 28, 1896, aged 57 years, 11 months and 14 days. A faithful wife, a loving and tender mother and an earnest Christian has entered her reward. The funeral was held in the Troy Presbyterian Church at 2 PM, May 1, and were largely attended. Burial was in the church cemetery, Troy, Indiana.
