RE: Genealogy Society Question
Hi, sorry it has taken me a bit to get back with you as I was gone all week visiting my daughter/family in Kansas and just returned. What you are referring to is the oldest fraternal organization in the United States. These were formed mainly for insurance purposes & they provided a marker so the widow did not have to purchase one, the men becoming members and if they died the widow would receive money-(life insurance). I'll let you read about it on redmen.org I am so glad you asked because it has been on my list to do and now looking this up for you, I have an address. My fraternal grandfather belonged to the Improved Order of Redmen so I am going to see how far back their records go, if he is listed.
It kinda is like the Mason's. You see there is a Council # that they belong to and the D of P is The Degree of Pocahontas.

RE: James Greer
No problem! The Crown Hill website also doesn't ever indicate if there is a marker. Looks like about 1/3 of the time, there isn't one. Sorry...

James Greer-Beech Grove Cemetery
I saw your headstone photo request and request for additional information. Here is an obituary that I located that may give you help. You may already have this information:

Mr. Greer enlisted in the Marine Corps Sept. 1, 1954 and was honorably discharged as a corporal in 1957. He was an active member of the Marine Corps Reserve.

Surviving are his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Donald Greer; his wife, Emma Chanery; a son, Donnie; a stepson, Terry; and three uncles and four aunts, Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth Griggs, Mr. and Mrs. Carl Greer, Clyde Greer, and Marie and Charlie Mae Gillentine. All are from Muncie.
