This cemetery is located on Vesta Road at the junction of Charlestown-Bethlehem Road in Clark's Grant, Section 81, about 2 miles southwest of Highway 62 (on the west side of the road).
The churches (both Presbyterian and Baptist) with which the cemetery was successively associated no longer exist at this location. The site is regularly cared for and is still in use today.
|For serious Clark County family historians, we
recommend the Hoosier Journal of Ancestry's "Clark
County Cemeteries" publication, a companion publication
of The Clark County Special.
This listing of 26 selected 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. The cemetery featured on this page is one of those included in this publication.
The 139-page "Clark County Cemeteries" publication is available from the Hoosier Journal of Ancestry $12.00 plus shipping and handling. I've added an HTML order form to this website to make it easier for you to obtain a copy of this valuable resource. I have no financial interest in this publication and provide this information only to facilitate your pursuit of Clark County history.
