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.

|Joyce M. Jeffries||Thank you!|
Mike Porter, Thank you for all your Find A Grave Contributions, and most especially for adding obit details to Find A Grave Memorial# 173316092. Much Appreciated!
|NWpioneer||RE: Lydia Wiles|
Thanks Mike. I see you also put up the obit for her son Chris.
I placed her daughter L. Flowers in South Park Cemetery, but I am not really sure if that is right. Her obituary only says that she was brought home to Decatur county for burial. Do your records for South Park have her in it?
|Judith W. (Family Finder)||RE: Margaret Oldfield|
Thanks so much, Mike. I appreciate your help!
|Heather Gray||Mary Whitlow|
Hi, Mary (Polly) Byram Whitlow was my g g g g g grandmother. I am told she was Cherokee Indian. Do you know if this is true or have any cites? Thanks!
|Judith W. (Family Finder)||Margaret Oldfield|
Find A Grave sent me a message regarding my request for a photo of the memorial for Margaret Oldfield. Apparently she does not have a stone. I wonder if you would mind noting that on her memorial page? This would be helpful for anyone else who might request a photo.
I really appreciate your help!

|Richard Hedrick||Addie M. McCoy (1858 - 1928)|
In regards to:
Addie M. McCoy
Birth: Mar. 18, 1858
Death: Dec. 30, 1928
This Addie McCoy was the wife of Wilburn Monroe McCoy as you can see from the pic of the tomb stone. This particular Addie was Addie Gavin, daughter of James Gavin and Martha Tucker, not the listed Thomas McCoy and Sarah Hughes McCoy.
|Richard Hedrick||Eliza Tucker|
You list this Eliza Tucker as the daughter of W.H. Tucker.
Birth: Nov. 5, 1808
Death: Jan. 3, 1881
daughter of W.H. Tucker
This particular Eliza should actually be Eliza Kennedy, wife of W.H Tucker based upon the birth and death dates.
|JeanineNew||Charles Strasburger (24464076)|
I see that you list Charles as the son of Charles and Julia Strasburger, but I am wondering if that is correct. Did that information come from the cemetery records, or was it submitted by someone?
I don't think the parents Charles and Julia married until after 1930, so his birth and death before then does not make a lot of sense. I may be missing some records, though, so any light you can shed on the situation would be most appreciated.
Richard Wright's Indiana death certificate says he is buried at Sand Creek. Do you have funeral records that give more information about where he might be? They can't find him at South Park as of my conversation with them 08/30/2016. Thanks for your help. I'd like to get a headstone for he and his wife Rebecca.

I believe the parents of Herman G. are George and Elizabeth K. Wohler not Herman and Mary Wohler. They are his grandparents.
