This cemetery is on private property. Obtain permission from property owner before visiting this cemetery.
Go north out of Greencastle about two miles to Co Rd 200N. Turn right and follow 200N about three miles to Co Rd to 200E. Turn right and follow 200E about one mile. Just after crossing the big iron bridge (Pinhook Bridge) the road goes east then south again. Continue south to where the road turns back east again and becomes Co Rd 100N. There is a log home on this corner with an old barn to the south. Go past the barn and through the barnlot south about 100 yards to the small stream. Cross the stream and go up the hill. The cemetery is at the top of this hill.
Condition: Poor
There are several stones in a pasture just off the edge of a ravine. At one time cattle ran through the area. There are a few weeds and some briars around, but the area is fairly clean. There are two monolith stones that have fallen off their bases. The bases are leaning, so it will be a big job to reset the bases and lift the stones back up on top the bases. There are a few more tablet stones that need to be reset as well. Neighbors indicate there were more stones in the area at one time.
