George (death date 1934), Rosana (death date 1934) and Joseph (death date 1938) are not buried in Maple Grove Cemetery UNLESS they were buried in unmarked gravesites owned by another party. The old Freeman Funeral Home records for George and Rosana list them with the last name "REAM" and as burials number 32-1934 and 33-1934 respectively. George died on July 14 and Rosana died on July 16 of that year. The burial records list "North Lewisburg" as the burial locations; however, these could have been in unmarked gravesites in the old Spain Cemetery portion of the Maple Grove Cemetery, North Lewisburg, complex. A similar situation exists for Joseph (death date 1938); he is listed with the last name "REAMS" in the old Freeman Funeral Home records as burial number 32-1938. He died on July 16th of that year. His burial is not recorded in any Maple Grove Cemetery documents for that year, UNLESS he was buried in an unmarked gravesite owned by another party. He, too, may be buried in the Spain Cemetery portion of the complex as several REAM and REAMS are buried there. Also, please note: there are NO cemetery deeds recorded as purchased for anyone named "REAM" or "REAMS in 1934 or 1938 in Maple Grove Cemetery. It becomes confusing because there are burials in Maple Grove Cemetery with the family name(s) spelled "REAM," "REAMS," and "REAMES."
