Harness Family Cemetery

south side of SR 18 at 480E

east of Young America, IN

Deer Creek Twp., Cass Co., IN


is north and east of a small southern tributary of Deer Creek and is near the north edge of the NE 1/4 of the NE 1/4 of Section 34 of T.25N & R.2E, of the 2nd Indiana P.M., and hence near the S.E. corner of Deer Creek Township, and the extreme south edge of Cass County, in north central Indiana.  Cemetery is less than one mile north of Howard County, about 4 miles slightly north of due east of Young America, about 4 1/2 miles due west of the south portion of Galveston; on the south of State Road 18 (Delphi to Galveston Road), and just west of "the old schoolhouse lot."

  Fieldwork for this present five-sheet report was done for the

L'Anguille Valley Memorial


Logansport, Indiana, on or about July 20, 1941,

by George W. Harness,

420 Burlington Ave.

Logansport, Indiana.

  Though said to have been orally donated for burial purposes in about 1855, this 147' X 108' tract was apparently not formally deeded for such a purpose until in 1906, when the late George W. Harness, Sr., of Howard County, conveyed it to two of his sons (and their hers) for this xpress purpose.  (In deed record 83, p. 530, Cass County Recorder's office, Logansport, Indiana.)


  Transcribed by Debby Beheler, a third great granddaughter and one of many descendants of George W. and Harriett (Sowers) Harness.  I have made several visits to Harness Cemetery since 1995.
