Utica Township, Clark County, Indiana

This cemetery is located on Reservoir Patrol Road, inside Army Ammunition Plant. It is just east of Gate 9 and its stone fence is clearly visible from Highway 62.  Click here for a topographical map of this site, courtesy of

Though referred to as "Adams Cemetery" by the U.S. Geological Survey map, the "official" name of the cemetery per the U.S. government (former owner of the Indiana Army Ammunition Plant) is "Barnett Cemetery").

Barnett Cemetery was in excellent condition when we visited on 11/29/97 (see picture at left). The families buried here were among Clark County's earliest pioneers.

I particularly enjoyed my first visit to this site as I had seen it for so many years while driving on Highway 62 and was always curious about the people buried there.

The only index to my knowledge is the one below, for which I wish to thank Jeanne Burke for her diligence during the whirlwind tour of the ten cemeteries inside the Ammunition Plant on 11/29/97. The principal surnames found here include:
