Gilliatt Family Cemetery


Section 26 - T1S R2W East Of Newton-Stewart Relocatied To Patoka Memorial Garden

PATOKA MEMORIAL CEMETERY; This cemetery is located about 9 miles from French Lick, Indiana, off Highway 145, next to Patoka Lake. When the reservoir was created, all known graves and burials that would be covered by the water, were exhumed and reinterred in a single location. The Gilliatt section is comprised of lots 1261 to 1291. Each lot is marked (either by a number or a stone marker), and all stones that were transferred to this site have been recorded . Information in parenthesis was added by this transcriber. DeAnne Gilliat Hays

(The original Gilliatt Cemetery was located in Jackson Township, east of Newton-Stewart. It was partly on the Crawford County line, at the edge of Orange County. It was located beside an abandoned church known as Wesley Chapel Methodist Church. That cemetery and church were on the land of the William B. Brubeck farm, owned later on by Harvey Gilliatt, and near where his first children were raised. Burials were stopped on this plot due to the marshiness of the land. The last person probably buried there was Harvey himself, in about 1900. He was the 5th child of John Gilliatt and Eve Joseph; he was the brother of John Henry Gilliatt. ---------- as written by Elvira Flick Burton in 1949 to her grand-nephew, Paul T. Gilliatt)
