March 19, 1941

Is 5/8 of a mile West of the Anoka Methodist Church , [a modern brick bldg.] located just East of the crossroads. Anoka is a village located where the PA. railroads Cincinnati and Columbus , OH lines join at Logansport , IN en-route to Chicago , IL . Cemetery is in T.26N., R2E., Sec.10 N.W 1/4 1/2N.W.corner, in N.E. part of WASHINGTON , Township, CASS County , INDIANA . Cemetery is 2 miles South of the Wabash River & 6 miles N.E. of Walton & 5 miles S.E. of Logansport. It is on what is known by locals as the William Hunter farm & only a few hundred yards north of the present [1941] farm home. It is directly in front of [W.] of the old Hunter pioneer log-cabin on the east side of a road that’s one mile long & which runs N. & S. of the mid-line of the W. 1/2 of Sec.10. The fenced portion of the cemetery is 12 - 20 ft. E. of the road & 11-19 S. of the east-to-west [ Anoka-to-Logansport ] road which forms Sec. 10’s extreme northern boundary.


No monuments at all in this little carefully fenced off square surrounded by cultivated fields but there is a lovely, prominent Hickory tree which seems to be a sort of reminder that here lies a reminder of Cass Counties Pioneer days & as a marker for the otherwise 2 or 3 [unmarked graves] which are acknowledged to be here.

  Children of  Samuel & Rosala Hunter who were the grandparents of  William Hunter who [1941] still resided just South of the cemetery & near his ancestral home.

  The authority of this history was the late, local historian,  Dr. J. Z. Powell, author of “The History of Cass County, Indiana”

  Mr. William Hunter has engaged did attempt [unsuccessfully] through letters try to obtain for us the given names & dates for us.

  Kingman’s “Atlas of Cass Co., IN -1878 ,” lists no Samuel Hunter but it is possible that he has already passed on by that date. It does, however, list Rosala Hunter who was probably the widow of Samuel as it says that “Rosala was a native of Maryland & came to Cass Co., IN 1832

  Comment: It is interesting to note, that though the family still lives in the immediate vicinity no one has mentioned the burial location of either Samuel or Rosala Hunter.
