Old Methodist Cemetery
Mooresville, Morgan County, Indiana

Lat: 39° 34' 38"N, Lon: 86° 20' 39"W
Brown Twp, Sec 8

Contributed by Jeff Curtis, Aug 25, 2006 [jefftcurtis@earthlink.net]. Total records = 23.

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.
