Charlestown Township, Clark County, Indiana

This cemetery is located on Essroc property near Stricker Road and Brick Church Road, in a field near Sinking Fork Creek. Click here for a topographical map showing the location of Goodwin/Nicholson Cemetery at 38° 26' 50"N, 85° 44' 01"W, in the NW 1/4 of Section 151.  {Courtesy of}

There is a large stone fence. The following records were secured in part by Mrs. George Patrick, Mrs. G. T. Bell, Mrs. Albert Boyer, the Home Ec Committee and the Pleasant Grove Club. (Circa 1940s.)

In the Spring of 1997, one or more miscreants attempted to exhume the body of a woman buried here for more than a century. The vandalism was reported by an observant Conservation Officer and Danny and Betty Johnson of Sellersburg, with the assistance of several local residents, filled in the three-foot hole at the gravesite and tackled the clean-up of this cemetery, which had not been tended in a number of years. "Thanks!"
