Other_Information:

my infant sister is buried in said cemetery as well as my great grandmother. a family plot was bought with 6 graves at the time that fritz was buried there and my sister and gr. grandmother was buried by him. my sister had only a small stone which went missing long ago, my two sisters and i wanted to put a stone on my sisters grave but when we went to the grave yard other people are buried recently in the spot of both said graves. we tried to contact the person in charge of the graveyard as it is a active graveyard and even been expanded but no one would talk to us. not the city, county or even the historical society nor would any one let out who was in charge of it. we was actually told that no one was in charge. how can that be if it has been expanded and people being still buried there? isnt that regulated by someone? it has been nearly 3 years since we found this out and getting nowhere with no one we have pretty much given up. however it causes me distress to know that someone can desecrate a grave in this way and try to ignore you. i would at least like to know what happened to my sisters bones. did they leave them, etc. if any one can help me with this it would be greatly appreciated. even the grave diggers wont talk to us.
