To reach cemetery, in Mooresville go east on IN 144 from the intersection of IN 67 and IN 144 for 1/4 mi to the first light. Turn right or south onto Rooker Road and continue for 2.2 miles to Shady Lane. Turn left onto Shady Lane and go .3 miles to an 'S' curve. After the 2nd bend the cemetery is on top of a ridge to the right.
This cemetery is also known as East White Lick Methodist cemetery. (White Lick is the name of a creek in the area).
I attempted to find this cemetery on Aug 20, 2006 and found that two private residences were also on the ridge. I saw no one I could ask about the location of the cemetery. There was also no where to park other than the driveways to the homes so I left. I will return this fall after the leaves are off the trees in hopes the cemetery might be visible.
I have transcribed, with permission, from work completed in Sep of 1967 by Carl and Janet Cowen, when they read all existing and legible stones.- Jeff Curtis
