This cemetery is on State Road 22 Southwest of Marion in Sims Township.
The graves have become so sunken that many stones have fallen into them and
cannot be reached except with difficulty.
The above was written by the DAR in the 1940's.
This cemetery is located in Section 36 of Sims Twp. 24 N - R. 6 E.,
on State Road 35/Indiana 22 just west of 600 W., southwest of Marion.
Pipe Creek flows near by. I read this cemetery June 4, 1994. Let me say I
tried to read it. There wasn't much left there to read. As the DAR wrote,
there are many graves here, as can be seen by the depressions in the earth.
But stones are missing, or sunk way below the earth. I probed the earth with
a 12 inch probe and found nothing. I did pick up on 3 more stones than the
DAR had, as listed below.
