Navigating with your smartphone.  By clicking on "view map" or "view map location" from this website, Google will display a map and identify each grave location with a colored marker.  When Google displays this map, press the "show your location" icon to plot your current location as you walk.
 
Maps can be optionally configured to display satellite views of the cemetery by pressing the "menu" icon within Google maps.
 
Most tombstones can be found within 4-5 feet of the colored marker on your map.  Latitude and longitude data was recorded with ±15 foot (worst-case) accuracy.
 
If you don't have a smartphone, print a copy of the map and take it with you on the tour.

Volunteers are Needed.  We need volunteers to take photos of grave markers (using their smartphones) and researchers to find historical plots in the oldest section along 18th Street.  Call Gene Abel at 812-276-1733, if you can assist in any way.  Your smartphone camera is the only equipment that you will need.  It will automatically record the GPS location of each photo, without any special software. 
 


Financial Support is Needed for Mowing Grass.  Generous donors have come to the rescue.  They support our contractor to mow the cemetery 6-7 times per year, just enough to make it to winter.
       

Can you financially sponsor mowing ONE SECTION for 2019?  Pick your favorite section.  Contact us at Green Hill Cemetery Association, P.O. Box 1442, Bedford, IN 47421, (812) 275-5110.
