Jeffersonville Township, Clark County, Indiana

Marker at Old Civil War Cemetery
near downtown Jeffersonville

Close-up of Civil War Cemetery
(transcript below)

The old Civil War Cemetery near present-day downtown Jeffersonville was located on what is now Mulberry Street (about 2 blocks south of the Hardee's on Court Street). The cemetery is located on what is now a children's playground behind Rosehill Elementary School.

According to the above monument, the Union and Confederate dead buried here were NOT exhumed; however, I have been advised by someone who has studied this situation that the bodies were, indeed, moved to Walnut Ridge Cemetery. This has not been confirmed, but bears investigation.

There stands today (1997) a large stone marker adjacent to the fence around the playground with the following inscription:

.               .                       .               .
I presently have no further information on this cemetery. This information was obtained from either the:
Jeffersonville Twp. Library     or      Charlestown Library
