George was supposed to have been buried in Liberty Cemetery, south of Martinsville, in Morgan County, Indiana.I visited the cemetery and found where his son and daughter are buried.My hunch is that George and Catherine didn't have tombstones (LJ-3/05)
There are many confusing things about this George Rosenbalm.I'm not sure about the last name of his wife; various sources give different names.I'm also not sure about the name of his father.
