Peru Mount Hope database has 500 burials added

With this evenings upload of updated pages, I have added over 500 burials to the database since the June 11th upload. There are many new surnames and lots of dates of burial that were in the cemetery burial books. If you have any connection to Peru, Indiana you will want to take a look at the Mount Hope Cemetery database.

Grandpa Rioth was a cooper

My grandfather, Frank Ernest Rioth, worked as a cooper (barrel maker) at the Continental Steel Mill in Kokomo, Indiana in the 1930s. He is standing, second from the right.

Cemetery updates

I have been busily adding burials from the Peru Mount Hope burial books. Tonight's update adds about 700 burials to the Mount Hope database. Hope this info will help someone break through a brick wall!

I received photos of Center UB Cemetery tombstones yesterday, so sometime in the future, I will be posting about adding them to the Cass County Cemetery data. Photos are by Patrick Jackson. Thanks, Pat!
