Mappy Monday - Walnut Ridge Cemetery (Late!)

Yeah, I know I'm a day late and a dollar short, but here's a Mappy Monday post anyway.  The map is Walnut Ridge Cemetery in New Albany, Floyd County, Indiana.  This is where Arminthia "Belle" Wiseman is buried.  She's been the subject of a couple of earlier posts, and was married to my anchor ancestor, Clyde Taylor Dillman.

This nice map and contact information for the cemetery was sent to me by Larry Lee Dillman, my father's cousin.  He was very helpful in providing directions and location clues so that I had no problem finding the grave site when I visited.  As this is a very large, old cemetery, it was nice to know just where to go instead of having to search for hours for one small old gravestone.

Mappy Monday – Do maps, deeds and land records factor in to your family history? Join us for Mappy Monday where you can post map images and how they relate to your research or discuss other aspects of land ownership and your ancestors. Several members of GeneaBloggers suggested this type of theme and in fact Holly Spencer of Ravenna Area Historical Society Blog has been using this theme since March 2009.  (Blurb shamelessly stolen from Thomas McEntee at Geneabloggers.)
