Thornton Graveyard
Jefferson County, Indiana

Contributed by Jackie Owen, May 2000 [edjackieowen@wmconnect.com]. Total records = 18.

Thornton graveyard is located east of Canaan, Shelby Twp IN, on State Road 62 between 7399 and 7485. You can see it from the highway. I did this survey with the help of the DAR list of 1941. My survey was completed on April 14, 2000. * This was on the DAR list but I was unable to locate the stone.

What makes us Different?

Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
