am starting a feature
for "Marion County's Backyard Burials." Some family members were buried
home in family burial plots and not in a formal cemetery. Sadly, many
of these burials are lost to the knowledge of their descendents. My
hope is to record these burials as I find them in old newspapers to
help in the researchers quest for knowledge of their ancestors. In some
instances it is not clear if "family burial ground refers to a family
plot in a cemetery.
