Godlove Cemetery

Delaware Township

Established in 1834, this small cemetery was a portion of the Godlove homestead. Both the cemetery and the Godlove farm back up against the Missisinewa River...It is sometimes called the De Poy Cemetery, most likely because the De Poy family lived directly across the road and were the cemetery caretakers for many years. There are several very old Godlove markers, and those have been damaged by weather. The De Poy stones are new and toward the front of the grounds.

The cemetery has an interesting history, with stones commemorating the burial of Indians and two children from a wagon passing through the area. There are no signs of vandalism in the cemetery, and the old, beautiful stones remain intact.

LOCATION: SEC 16 600N & E of 525E - Northeast of De Soto.
