Charles W. Scott, R.R.4, Peru, IN [on request of the Hon. Chester Henson, Township Trustee, Miami Twp.,  R.R.4, Logansport] who did the fieldwork  about the 1-Jun-1940.

Report compiled by, Mr. J. Slaton Kline, High Street Rd. , R.R.4, Logansport,

Editing, verifications & remarks added by secretary of the L.V.M.A., [R.B.W.Jr.]


 J.Z. Powell (local historian), about 1907, visited this large cemetery and copied a few of the very oldest inscriptions, some of which are longer found on stones or were found to be undecipherable in our 1940 canvass of this cemetery.   This report includes those notes which he made nearly a third of a century ago.


This report contained several inconsistencies between the notes that J.Z. Powell made and what is recorded in the 1940 report. I have attempted to make notes or add to data by verification of said data by the means of other reports including. The (N.P.S.),  National Parks Service Civil War database; The (C.C.D.I.), Cass County death index; The  (I.G.I.), International Genealogical Index, and the (S.S.D.I.), Social Security death index.
