|Maplewood Cemetery Records, Anderson, Madison County, Indiana|
According to the cemetery office, many of the records were destroyed in a fire. Isn't that always the case with my Madison County relatives? But at least in this case we have this log.
The owner of this lot # 437 is S. Pearce (note the spelling). In the list of the persons buried in this plot are the following :
Henry Pierce - no other identifying information. This is Henry E. Pierce (1833-1901), the son of Francis S. & Rebecca (Page) Pierce.
Simeathy Pierce - this is Henry's wife, Simeathy (Smelsor) Pierce.
Frank Pierce - this is Henry & Simeathy's son, Franklin T. Pierce (1861-1919)
Eva Pierce - this is Henry & Simeathy's daughter
These records back up what the monuments display at the cemetery.
