SURNAMES: MILLER, GILL, WORKMAN, PRICHARD
I made a field trip to Jackson county a couple of weeks ago to fill in some blanks in my tree. While in the area I stopped by Ridgewood cemetery and got some help from the crew there finding the burials of a few relatives. They referred to a collection of books/ledgers that listed every burial by name, location and interment date. Does anyone out there know the legal/privacy issues involved in maybe getting a copy of these records to assist in locating relatives? The supervisor/manager of the cemetery was not there at the time and besides I didn't think of it until later, but if I were to take a scanner in to avoid having to take the records off the site to copy them (of course considering that the management would allow access) do you think it would be legal/permissable to get this info for public access? Has anyone approached this matter before? I could see how there would probably be someone out there that would object to this info being easily available but maybe the answer to that is to not publish the info on the web but instead to offer lookups by request only for interested researchers. Please share any ideas/previous experiences with this idea.

EWING had daughters Florence Ella EWING, who married William Fleet PALMER from Frankfort Indiana, and Jesse Alice EWING, who married Fred W.
