Comments re photo 21630 Bear Wallow United Methodist Church Cemetery, John Ed Burton grave

Ronald D, Hege writes:
My name is: Ron Hege (age 73) from Indianapols, Indiana. My grandpa and grandma are buried in this little cemetary. Fred (Fed) Bryant and Roanne Bryant.

When I was there - 40 some years ago their graves were out in front and over to the left of the front door of the little church, at the foot of a tree.

They are probably gone now, but grandpa carved both of their stones. They were approximately 18"X12" and maybe 3/4 inch thick. I believe one son - "Walker" is buried there also. --Ronald D. Hege
Thanks. If we can get to the cemetery or if someone sends a photo of the stones in question, we'll make every effort to post them. Of course, if you make a visit there soon, that would be even better. Bear Wallow Church, its campus, and the cemetery have to be the epitome of the beautiful sights, anywhere. Couldn't think of any way to improve on it. -EW
