The "lot" referred to was the burial lot of Ollie Shubert Milner Gipson, at Indian Creek Cemetary in Decatur, Ga. I am currently in the process, as Nellie's daughter, trying to locate the "exact" burial spot. I know the area, but the grave is unmarked. It is my Mother Nellie's wish for me to locate the grave and put a marker on it. Nellie is 90 years of age now in 2004. Ollie is my Grandmother. Several years after Ollie died, Nellie called the cemetary keepers to ask if the grave was being cleaned off. They said not enough money was left for them to keep it clean. Nellie had no transportation to visit often. Nellie's Aunt Estelle had her son in law go there and cut down trees possibly in the 50's. Ollie was buried there in 1939. Probably no vault used in the burial. The original records for the cemetary were burned in a house fire. A transcript of all visible and marked graves is available at the Indian Creek Baptist Church, Decatur, Ga. There are trees growing there now and a concrete block wall as a fence beyond, and possibly right on Ollie's grave, or either she could be in the backyard beyond the fence. I am working on this!!! I have taken my Mother there and we have a very close idea as to where it will be. Any help on locating unmarked graves will be appreciated by anyone, in any way. ES
