CAMPBELL FAMILY CEMETERY

From the Lost River DAR records

Transcribed by Tom Agan


Orleans Township Section 19, T1N R1E. Abandoned.

This little burial plot, abandoned and almost obliterated, is about 1 mile north of Orleans and a short distance east of state highway 37. The fence is down, cattle have grazed over it, the markers have fallen and are so broken that it is impossible to decipher some of the inscriptions, The land originally belonged to Robert Campbell, who came to Orange Co. from Kentucky in 1818, with his second wife and children. His will, probated May 27,1845, mentions a certain piece of land, set aside for a burying ground and reference is made to graves already there. The stones of Robert Campbell and his wife could not be found. The inscriptions were copied by Miss Josephine Lindsey, of Mitchell, Indiana.

The following is a transcript of data recorded by the Lost River Chapter of the DAR in the 1940's and remains their property.  This page may be freely copied for your personal use but may not be reproduced in any public media without permission
