|Suzanne Emig||RE: John Bothwell|
HI, Luke--This is an extremely old cemetery. I learned of it's existence a few months ago when researching a branch of my dad's family by marriage. The Demmons were one of the first famililies in this area of Lake Co., IN to settle here and take up farming. It was a huge family. Many of them are buried here. They are planning a reunion in June of '17. I wanted to visit the cemetery myself, as I volunteer at the local historical society and the cemetery is a couple of miles down the road. The group plans to visit the museum and local cemeteries. We plan to do a couple of exhibits and make the family info we have available to them. So I guess curiosity got the best of me after our meeting yesterday and I had seen your request. I think many, many of the markers have been lost or sunk over time. It's now well maintained but I read in old papers that it was overgrown in the 60's or 70's, so an Eagle Scout made it his project. I don't know who takes care of it now or where old records would be. I was surprised, actually for the large area it covers that there were so few markers. I was kind of astonished to find a JB as his name was not indexed. As I said this may not be him, but it's within the realm of possibility! Regards, Suzanne

You are welcome. You corresponded by email on Weds with the person who took the photo.

I just finally spoke with the supt. of Walnut Grove. There was no information in the records except that Enos was 76n when he died. Sorry I couldn't have been more help.

Wow! Thank you for such a throrough reply! :o) My husband (Brad Countryman) is a great-grandson of Fred Bauer and Emma. (Their daughter Evelyn Bauer married Brad's grandfather, Lester Countryman.) Now that I think about it, the Bible may have been Fred and Emma's. I will have to look tonight when I get home. I don't think Brad will want to part with the Bible, but I can make you copies of the family history inside of it.
|Deborah C||Emma Schumaker/Shoemaker|
Where can I find any documents with Emma's maiden named spelled as you have it listed (Schumaker)? I am just wondering because my husband has a an old Bauer Bible with it listed as Shoemaker.
|Denise F||RE: Matilda Winn|
Hi Luke. I am not really near Constantia, and I only get up there once or twice a year. But the Winn name is very big up there, so you might be able to find something at rootsweb.com or write to the cemetery - the supt. might have information for you.
Sorry, 'wish I could've helped.

Very sorry about the state of the marker; it faces west into the weather and is very old. If I find out anything else about him from the supt. I will let you know.

Plot location should read: Single grave 63 Row 35
|Jen Snoots||RE: Stephen burgess|
Your welcome for the photo, I know it's a disappointment to see no marker! There are 8 graves in the plot, but only 3 markers. I'm no relation, but you might contact, if you haven't already, Debbie, because she is. Maybe you can compare notes :)
