|Bio and Links|
I originally joined findagrave.com in 2002 while researching family on ancestry.com. What a great data pool of info! Since my involvement, I have sadly discovered so many family cemeteries and smaller public cemeteries have been plowed under, paved over or just sadly neglected. Many of our war heroes have no respectable resting place, much less a marker. Many loved ones, many children, have no one left to care for their graves. Please ask your local groups, scouts, churches, civic, etc. to "adopt" a cemetery and take care of it. Monument dealers will work with you on simple markers for these graves. This is our history. This is our heritage. The Veteran Affairs Office will provide free markers for any Revolutionary War, Civil War, Spanish War, War of 1812 and any war on foreign shores. Thank you in advance for you consideration in these matters... and God Bless America!|

|Dave Stutesman||RE: Transfers|
Me too! I went to the woods today to cut firewood and was whipped after 2 hours. I still need to get that stone up there too!
You may transfer any Hostetler/Hostettler, Robison, Bottorff, Mclean, or Selmier graves you might have in the New Washington area to me if you wish.

You very helpfully supplied Plot: Sec AA Lot 51 as the location of this grave in Crown Hill Cemetery in New Washington, Clark County, Indiana. His year of birth is listed as 1864 and date of death is unknown. There is no photo, so I'm guessing that there is likely no memorial stone. I believe this is my 3rd great uncle, son of John H. Ferry (1835-1908) and Elizabeth Ferry (1842-1910) who are both buried in the Old Salem United Methodist Church Cemetery, also in Clark County.
I have located a death record for this John Ferry's wife, Minnie Ferry from April 1931. It lists John as deceased. I'd like to pin down his death date a little more closely. I thought it would be a simple matter to look up a phone number for the Crown Hill Cemetery and get an internment date, but I'm unable to find a number. I'm reaching out to you in hope that you may know who I could contact for further information on burials at this cemetery.
|Bill Durham||RE: Emmanuel Cemetery|
Gail, The county lines were redrawn years (over 50) ago and Emmanuel Cemetery and church now resides in Jackson Twp., Washington Co., IN. My great-great-great grandfather Frederick Racke (now spelled Rockey) deeded land for this church when it was started. My cousin has the papers. At that time it was in Wood Twp., Clark County, but for whatever reason, when the line was redrawn, the property is now in Washington County. Bill

Ok, thanks for your prompt response. The burial records have priority. Thanks!
|Gary Powell||Thomas V. Shouse 73690802|
I see that you have created a memorial for Mr. Shouse. You have him buried in Crown Hill Cemetery in Indiana. I have read his Courier-Journal obituary dated April 22, 1994. It states that his body was donated to the UL School of Medicine. Can you clarify this? Thanks!
|Linda Morris Croy||RE: Goss I cemetery|
According to the cemetery book, this cemetery is located in Section 6, on farm known as the old Allen Goss Farm.
We actually went to the cemetery but Richard Dixon took us there and we went to 40 different cemeteries on our trip to Indiana so can't tell you for sure. Richard could tell you.

Garland Cherry is my great grandfather and I was wondering if you would transfer his memorial to my care. Thank you.
