Poor Farm Asylum Cemetery
In "Historical Notes On Dubois County, Indiana" historian George R. Wilson wrote:
"On Sunday October 11, 1936, the writer visited the Dubois County Infirmary to ascertain the names of the deceases inmates that were buried in the Potter's Field on the farm since the autumn of 1881 when the present farm became the poor asylum.
It developed that no record of burials were kept and the graves were not marked or even numbered. The unfortunate people were buried in rows, but no plat was made of the burial plot. The dead took the next grave and that was all.
The following is a listing off all individuals that from county health department records are believed to be buried here. Some who died at the infirmary were buried elsewhere. This information was obtained from death records by the Dubois County Genealogical Society and published in Volume 6 of Dubois County Cemetery Records  by the society.
