Jordan Cemetery

Wabash Township

Gibson County, Indiana 
Coordinates: Latitude, 38.2521; Longitude, -87.8558
Congressional Location: SE-1/4; NE-1/4; SECTION 20; TOWNSHIP 3S; RANGE 13W
Common Directions:

1/4 miles southwest of Crawleyville. Located about 300 feet east of County Road 1675W, about 1-6/10 miles north of County Road 850S (County Line Road).  From  SR 165 turn west onto County Line Road (CR 850S) and go approximately 5 miles to the intersection with CR 1675W and turn right (north) onto CR 1675W.  CR 1675W (know as Freeman Road south of the Gibson-Posey county line) runs absolutely straight north from County Line Road.  In the first slight bend in the road to the right there is a driveway entrance to a double-wide mobile home.  A gravel drive curves behind the home to the southeast for about 100 feet to an opening through the treeline into a grassy fiield.  The cemetery is about another 200 feet up along the crest of the hill.
