RE: Samuel Bard Douglas
You are welcome. After reading where someone was in the cemetery and couldn't find the stone I was excited when I saw it. One of two things usually happen when death date is missing.One, the spouse died first and no one to follow up or he may have died and been buried someplace else? Did you notice the spelling of his wife's name? Kay

Hey, he shares my birthday, just 106 years earlier!

No strip mall anywhere near by. This is at the corner of Alto Rd and Dixon Rd. If you are coming up US 31 from Indy, take the US 931 exit. Once you go past Indiana State Rd 26, go north 2 more traffic lights and make a left. That's Alto Rd. Go probably 2 miles west and you'll intersect with Dixon Rd, aka 200 W. Make a left turn (heading south). On the SW corner is a Mike's Pizza. Two buildings down is a business office and the cemetery is immediately next to that. I parked in the business lot but it's only like 12 cars big (it's across from the volunteer fire stations). I walked through the edge brush to get into the cemetery as there is no official entrance.

You could also put Mike's Pizza in your GPS as 4001 S Dixon Rd
Kokomo, IN 46902 and that will get you there, shy of about 1000 ft.

You can also peek at Google Maps to get an idea.

I was visiting Kokomo so I won't readily have a chance to go back and clean it up. My parents used to live near the cemetery and I didn't even realize it was there. Of all of the photo requests outstanding for there (I think there were only 6), James was the only one I managed to find. He was up near an old dead tree at the top of the hill, slightly to the East side.

The cemetery is in really bad shape. Many of the stones are broken or toppled and even more unreadable. I really only spotted James because of the angle of the sun allowed me to read the stone from several feet away. I had already walked by it once and didn't see it the first time.

The good news is that the photo has the GPS location. If you (or somebody else) has a smart phone they should be able to get back to the same GPS location (use the compass app on an iPhone and it shows your GPS location). Perhaps a rubbing might be useful.

I did stumble on another site, http://edanddebby.com/HCC/Alto/index.html, that is supposedly all of the cemetery's in Howard County Indiana. The link I provided is all of the photo's on their site for the cemetery.

RE: Stephen Douglass
I'm not that far from there. My husband & I go to cemeteries every weekend. We'll be glad to see if we can find his stone.
