Hudson Cemetery
Marion Twp

This cemetery is on private property. Obtain permission from property owner before visiting this cemetery.
Go east of Greencastle on US 240 to Co Rd 850S. Turn right on 850S and go south about 50 yards. There is a cultivated field to the right (west). Go east into the field. There will be a field to the left and a grassy strip to the right, which runs along US 240. Follow the edge of the field due east about 100 yards up the hill. There are several stones lying on the ground on the top of this hill, along the edge of the field in a clump of trees.
Condition: Poor
Cemetery is at the edge of a field in a clump of woods. Some stones are leaning against trees and some are flat on the ground. It is believed the stones were at one time in the field to the south of the woods. This seems probable since the stones are leaning against trees and scattered. The stones are clearly not in their original location. Farmer should be informed he is in violation of IC 14-21-1-26.5 which prohibits disturbing the ground within 100 feet of a cemetery without filing a development plan with DNR.  IC 14-21-1-24 specifically includes disturbing the ground for agricultural purposes within IC 14-21-1-26.5. Thus, someone who farms within 100 feet of a cemetery commits a Class C misdemeanor. If a person disturbs human remains or grave markers while committing this offense (i.e. nicks the tombstones with a plow) he has committed a Class D felony. This statute should not be taken lightly.
