RE: Charles Barbour request
Mark, I had walked this cemetery a couple of times and not found the grave you requested. It is a low stone, under leaves, and almost overgrown with grass. It is located beside a large, old mausoleum in the southeast corner of the Glenwood Cemetery.

Eliza Heneghan
Hi Again

I notice in Eliza's obit that her body was shipped back to Olmsted County for burial. Is it possible that she is buried beside her husband in Minnesota?

I see in your bio for James that you have seen his wife's family bible. Are there entries for her and/or her family? The Pitts family is related to my Shenton family via marriage and I am looking for some additional info.

RE: Section C-A
I will save you the trouble by saying that the people whose running the cemetery know very little, I was lucky to find out what I did. This area was a potters field until 1926 when it was moved to the very back, the reason why theres no markers was because the people here had no money for them and in those days the temporary markers didnt come from the funeral home, they were usually homemade. I did a cemetery last month where i saw a lot of concrete markers placed, I could try and get a plot list for this area but I dont know how successful I will be..I will keep you posted.

RE: Philadelphia Reed Miller
I had some people I know on facebook who has connections with Posey County History help me with a section of the cemetery thats not very well charted, I checked with the health dept and verified she was here, and then found out where she was. Rose Reed I believe is John's wife. George Miller is also interred in section C-A.

RE: Philadelphia Reed Miller
I know its been a while, I have information about Philadelphia, She was buried in Section C-A of Bellefontaine and that section was a potters field or a paupers grave section which means she has no stone, the section looks more like a yard than a cemetery. Shes not listed in the book because there was some records damaged and she appears to be a victim of this. I have been working to find her all this time, and I am as upset as probably you are to learn this. Also Theres a John and Rose Reed (not sure if related) who also shares this fate. I am again very sorry that you had to find this out, and if I can be of any further assistance, please let me know.

RE: Philadelphia Reed Miller

Yeah I knew about her going by Della and I looked for that nake also, I also checked Black's Cemetery in West Mount Vernon and she's not there, when I was out in Grafton at Beech Grove I also looked there and she's not there either, I will be going to Wadesville and the Laurel Hill Cemetery and see if she is there. Is it possible that she has no stone? I saw a ton of Millers in one area and no luck. I didnt see any Reeds however. I am wondering if she's buried in the old cemetery and her stone was vandalized or deteriorated..I will remember her name and if I come across her grave I will definitely photograph it and also tell you where it is.
