Pilcher Cemetery is located on 600W just south of 250S, in Polk Township, Huntington County IN.
Pilcher cemetery is one of the oldest cemeteries in the county. The first known burial was a young daughter in the Fisher family in 1836, and the last known burial was Charles Ewing in 1901.
This is a list of tombstone inscriptions only, I went to the cemetery and did this list myself in April of 2001, and have pictures of the tombstones. The names of people with markers missing or unreadable were recorded in an earlier transcription, only their date death will be mentioned. I used the older transcription to fill in the death date of worn markers.
