Oregon Township, Clark County, Indiana

According to History of the Ohio Falls Counties, published 1882, page 380:


"On the road leading from West Point landing to Hibernia, on Mr. Levi's farm, is one of the oldest burying-grounds in this end of the county. It was here that many of the old settlers were buried. There are no fences now to separate it from the outside world. Briars and bushes have everything their own way.

"Two miles from Hibernia, on the Bethlehem road, is the old family burying-ground of Allen Perry. It is off the left a quarter of a mile, and is rapidly going the way of many other such places. The Perrys do not own the place at present [meaning 1882].

"In the old Patterson neighborhood, three miles above Hibernia, on the right of the Bethlehem road, is another of very great age. It is also overgrown with briars and bushes. Everything borders on dilapidation.

"Captain John Armstrong founded a burying-ground at Armstrong's station, in the southeast corner of the township. It was about 50 x 60 feet. The situation is picturesque, as the mourners overlooked the Ohio while depositing their dead in the tomb. Captain Armstrong was a distinguished pioneer in this part of the Grant. His name is perpetuated by a station or steamboat landing on the Ohio." [This location is actually in Charlestown Township.
