In follow-up to my post earlier this week on Kalonji’s great-grandmother Betty, I was indeed able to go to the cemetery today and take a picture of her headstone. The Oak Hill Cemetery here in Evansville maintains a database of all those buried there, so they make it rather convenient to locate your loved ones. It is a huge cemetery so, it is quite necessary.
Betty is buried in Section 54 of the cemetery and here is her headstone:
Since we had the exact section information, Kalonji and I were able to find her literally in less than a minute. I was pleasantly surprised to see that one of her children, her daughter Elnora, was buried next to her. The year of birth on Elnora’s headstone is 1920, but the records I have so far suggest 1919. I’ll have to sort that out later.
While I was visiting the cemetery, I took a few pictures at random to see if they were needed for FindAGrave.com and I ended adding Betty, Elnora and about 12 strangers up to FindAGrave.
