Graves on Alson Harvey's Farm

From the Cemetery Records compiled by the Lost River Chapter DAR


Stampers Creek Township Section 29, T1N R1E. Abandoned

This farm lies on the north side of State Highway 150, and was for many years known as the Shrewsbury Mattox place. The land was entered by John Vandeveer in 1819. There are a dozen graves far beyond the house with sandstone markers and no inscriptions. It is said that some of the burials were travelers who had camped in the vicinity long ago, and died from cholera, their names unknown. This was the New Albany-Vincennes Road, main route of travelers bound for the west.
