Oregon Township, Clark County, Indiana

Notice that Sarah McClure was a "Civil War Nurse"
and her husband John was a member of Co. F, 81st Indiana Volunteer Infantry

This lovely little cemetery is located on Cemetery Road near Highway 3 and Highway 362 at the northernmost edge of Oregon Township, just inside the Clark Co./Scott Co. line and is near Nabb, Indiana.

Last summer, vandals did a considerable amount of damage in the cemetery, pushing over and damaging many stones.  Most of the damage has been repaired, including resetting a huge monument.

I just had to share this with you.  Below (left) is the front of a large, beautifully etched stone for Howard M. Zimmerman (1919-1989).  On the back of this stone is the poem that follows.  Two guesses what this man's occupation was!
"Hats off to the man who drives a truck.
He battles traffic, dust and muck.
He pushes through with heavy loads
No matter what or where the roads.
His life is one of sleepless nights;
Of facing thoughtless undimmed lights;
Of countless flats, of juggling spares,
Of changing tires with lighted flares,
Of loading produce, oil and freight
To haul away to some other state.
For on the road we've found you fair
And hope that some day you'll wind "up there".
And when you climb those golden stairs,
We hope you find no use for flares.
Just go to the gates -- and walk right through
And get that sleep that's long past due."
