The website for Crown Hill Cemetery in Indianapolis, Indiana was very helpful in researching the Wright and Hammond biographies of the previous post. It includes an on-line Burial Locator. Crown Hill Cemetery has been in existence since 1864. Additionally, they have on-staff genealogists. For $5.00, they will provide whatever information that they have on an individual and a map and listing of others buried in the same lot. For Worth Wright, this included a burial permit, the equivalent of a death certificate. For $10.00, except in the winter, they will provide a color digital photo of a headstone or monument. Additional pictures on the same lot are only $2.00 each. I found Crown Hill Cemetery to be a very useful and inexpensive resource!
