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.

52346220 you might want to combine the information in the two memorials in Sand Creek. It looks like the same person. Thanks for all your hard work. SR

RE: Robert Schofner
There are times when I do believe the funeral home records on a date because they are in chronological order - especially for the death date - so I was hoping that was one you added from your own records. Your explanation of him being reburied in 1910 probably does explain the mistake on the tombstone.

Perhaps this might be one of those times where a note put in his bio calling attention to the error on his tombstone might help others who would wonder about the difference and save you getting another contact about the difference.

I've seen where you can sponsor a memorial but I never checked into it. Thanks for letting me know.
