Charlestown Township, Clark County, Indiana

There are two sites in this tiny community commonly known as "Otisco Cemetery". One is behind the grocery store in Otisco on Old Highway 3, but that one is in Monroe Township. (Otisco proper is located in three Townships -- Monroe, Oregon and Charlestown.)

The second "Otisco Cemetery" is located in Charlestown Township. I have seen it also referred to a "Seedtick Cemetery", "Seatick Cemetery" and even "Seastick Cemetery". The road on which it is located is alternately referred to on various maps as "Seedtick Road" and "Seatick Road". (The U.S. Geological Survey map for Charlestown Township lists this property as "SeedStick Cemetery" on "Seatick Road".)  It is situated less than a mile West of Highway 3, in the Northwest quarter of Grant 209.  Click here for a topographical map of this site, courtesy of www.TopoZone.com.

     The "Clark County Cemeteries" publication of the Hoosier Journal of Ancestry (P.O. Box 33, Little York, Indiana
     47139; no e-mail address) contains a row-by-row index of this cemetery, performed circa 1986. The 139-page "Clark
     County Cemeteries" publication is available from the Hoosier Journal of Ancestry at the above address for $12.00 +
     $1.00 for shipping and handling. This listing of 26 cemeteries in Clark County includes maps of the County and each
     township, directions to the various sites and row and grave numbers for the burials listed.
