|Bio and Links|
I am a third generation funeral director in Greensburg, Indiana. I have done research on my family tree. I have placed all individuals in our funeral records dating back to 1886 on the find-a-grave website.|
I would like to thank Russell Wilhoit for all his efforts in recording the burials at South Park Cemetery up until 1924 on spreadsheet. I would also like to thank Greg Meyer for all his work in documenting burials in several cemeteries in Decatur County. I have used their information for many of the memorials in which I have placed on Find-a-grave.

Hi Mike... I just submitted thru edit button, name change for 24377938 whom you listed as James N. Candy on Feb. 3, 2008. The name is James Wesley CaUdy. This surname is often mistaken for the name Candy... Ancestry.com has an application for headstone for Mr. Caudy dated May 9, 1925 with the War Department. Application was made by a Wm. McCune.. for James W. Caudy; Private; Co.,B; 57 Ind. Inft., date of death April 14, 1925. Cemetery South Park; Greensburg, Decatur Co., Indiana. Permanent address for applicant was 307 North Michigan Ave., Greensburg. Headstone was said to have been military headstone was said to have been shipped on May 23, 1927. If you do not have access to document, I can email you a copy.
|Patrizia||Catherina Kreinest Alf|
Mike- I went ahead and entered the spelling of Catherina's name per your suggestion. You were the only one that sent me any documentation. I put a note on her memorial to let other contributors know this. Thanks for the update!

Thanks for the update, Mike. It's been added to her memorial. Looks like you're hard at work taking photos--they look great!

Thank you.. I appreciate it.. It is a very good photo.. Jeani

Guess you can't believe the spelling on tombstones, can you?
I evidently didn't search much or would have questioned that years ago. I'll go hunt for the photo and perhaps you might note in his bio the various spelling of his name.

Thanks Mike. Adding the information to the memorial gives insight into the person instead of just a name on stone. Thank you Barbara
