Davidson or IOOF Giro  Cemetery Records with photographs of headstones.

Pike County, Indiana

NOTES :  This cemetery is located near the Gibson - Pike County line, just east of Giro, Indiana and in the extreme northwest corner of Clay Twp., Pike County, Indiana.  Entrance is off CR350N, roughly mile east of it's intersection with CR950W.  All cemetery photographs were taken by Daniel L Elliott, 13 Aug 2009 and updated on 3 Jul 2014.  Aerial photograph 2009 MapQuest Inc.
                The part of the cemetery that opens off the entrance road is herein referred to as the West Section.  The part that at the other end is referred to by two terms:  1) Davidson, the part enclosed by a block wall and 2) East, the part around but outside "Davidson" to both the North and East.  For purposes of this enumeration Rows in the West section are numbered starting on the West boundary of the cemetery.  No Row numbers were assigned for either the Davidson or East Sections.
                The term "No headstone found" means that either there is no headstone or that one may exist but now is buried, broken or weathered beyond recognition.  There are a number of stones in the Davidson Section, in particular, that are no longer readable.    
                Pike County, Indiana, Cemetery Records, Clay Twp., (1979) Compiled and Typed by Joan Woodhull was used to check this compilation, and was the source for the "No headstone found" entries below.
