The Parker Cemetery in Eagle Creek Park will be open for exploration on Wednesday, May 7th. The Genealogical Society of Marion County will lead an expedition through the woods at 10 am, starting at the Eagle's Crest soccer field parking area. [Rain date May 9]
The volunteers will do a little shallow excavating to see if additional headstones or footstones are buried where last fall's probing party indicated they might be. Hopefully the marker flags are still in place!
To get to Eagle's Crest, exit Lafayette Road in Pike Township onto Wilson Road, go west on Wilson to Fishback Road, turn south (left) on Fishback to Raceway and exit left into the Park. Wear woods trekking clothes; bring maybe a trowel, a brush, an old rag or two, a bottle of water. Cameras and/or cellphones are optional.
For additional info or questions, email Ron Darrah at firstname.lastname@example.org. See you there! Cell 317-318-3768.
