2 + miles N.N.W of Twelve Mile, Indiana & west of the Chesapeake & Ohio railway track. Is near the South edge of the N.W. 1/4 Sec. 7, T.28 N., R.3 E., 2nd Ind. P.M. & is in the N.W. portion of ADAMS Twp., N.E. CASS County , INDIANA .  Cemetery is less than 1 &1/2 miles south of the FULTON County line.

Comment: An Aerial photograph of this region indicates that this township is not a full mile from east-west but it is difficult to understand how this could have happened when it was government surveyors who originally surveyed this region. Perhaps we should call it Fractional N.W. 1/4 of Fractional Section 7.

Surrounded by cultivated fields, this cemetery is unfenced, over-grown with trees and in an extremely bad [abandoned & neglected] condition as of November 1941 when the fieldwork was done for the




By or under personal direction of

Mr. Omer J. Maus , Twelve-Mile Twp., & Trustee of Adams Twp., Cass County .

This report contains the notes of late Cass Co., Historian, Dr. J.Z. Powell who visited this cemetery between 1907 & 1909.& stated at that time that there were approximately 100 graves in this cemetery and most of them were unmarked. He copied into a notebook, a few of the names & dates. Those are included in this 1941 report as the stones are broken, undecipherable or overlooked [in the weeds] or missing.

Buck, G. Samuel or Ashabel? [J.P.Z.says  Rev. ASHABEL Buck d.1865 age 43]

1941 copyist says G. Samuel Buck. I couldn’t find any G. Samuel Buck but found an Ashel Buck in 1860 Liberty Twp.,  Fulton Co., IN ae. 37 & a farmer.

Lunsford, Frank M.:  fieldworker says death recorded on monument at Mt. Hope Cem.

1909 notes by J.Z.P. [stated Mrs. Nancy Ghapin was w/o A.B. Chapin] & was included in the 1941, transcript as stated by J.Z.P. Transcriber has corrected it to Nancy Chapin w/o Alvin B. Chapin.

1909 Mary Chapin  d/o R.B. Chapin [notes by J.Z.P.stated that Mary Ghapin was the d/o B.B. Ghapin.] No one surnamed Ghapin appears in IN records  & since Chapin is in this cemetery as well as close by Fulton Co., the name on the old weathered stone was probably mis-read & should be Chapin. Also, R.B. not B.B. as no B.B.Chapin appears but R.B. does appear in USC records.

Lydia McHenry [J.Z.Powell says " Lydia {Mrs. H.M. Haney] is wrong. See [1860 USC. Adams Twp., Cass Co., IN for Henry & Lydia McHenry]

Ida May Rice: Adopted d/o C & J   [J.Z.Powell says d/o G & J. Ray] but no G. Ray appears in records but

1860 USC Liberty Twp., Fulton Co., IN [a childless couple -Christian Rice ae.27 & wife Eliza J. ae.24 yrs.& 1870 USC they are in Cass Co.with a 7 yrs. old son.]
