This online index only lists the individual, death date (if known) and reference page. We are creating a master index of everyone who is buried in this county and their burial location to aid researchers. We are especially in need of people buried here who have no stones or whose stones no longer exist. If you have any of this information or if you have additional information for anyone who is buried in this cemetery, please email the Warren County Genealogical Society.

Cemetery History

What remains of this cemetery are in an overgrown wooded area next to a small ditch with corn fields on either side. All of the remaining tombstones and nearly all of the footstones are all now broken off and laying on the ground - some in pieces. Considering the placement of the remaining stones, there were probably many more burials and stones than can be found. First known burial is for the child, Mary Jane Turpin who died in 1820.

    • The photos on this page were taken 21 Jul 2004 for the Warren County Genealogical Society when they were reading the cemetery and used here with their permission. Having footstones associated with a particular tombstone in the photos below is a strictly a guess. These efforts will be incorporated into the new cemetery books planned by the society.
