Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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.

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?

Margaret Oldfield
Hi Mike,

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!

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.

Eliza Tucker
Hi Mike,

You list this Eliza Tucker as the daughter of W.H. Tucker.

Eliza 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.

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
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.

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

RE: Wilbur Meyer
Thank you for letting me know about another duplicate memorial for Wilbur. I have sent him a message to delete it also.

Thanks so much for working together,
