The Cemetery Detectives were on the job last Wednesday, travelling to Oak Hill Cemetery, located just north of Old Vincennes Trail. Pictured from left, Babe Papproth, Kathy Dice, Vern Malare, Tom Schwarztrauber and Caroline Malare. Tom is holding a set of Grave Dowsing Rods over the Coal Miners Memorial Monument which he repaired with some of the group’s Injection Grout Mixture. Three unmarked coal miners’ graves were located in the area behind the monument.
