Shiloh Cemetery
Waverly, Morgan County, Indiana

Lat: 39° 31' 36"N, Lon: 86° 15' 49"W
Harrison Township, Section 36

Contributed by Jeff Curtis, Oct 25, 2007 [jefftcurtis@earthlink.net]. Total records = 110.

The cemetery is approximately 1 mile east of Indiana state road 37 on Big Bend Road. The cemetery is a few hundred feet south of Big Bend Road but is accessible from a gravel road that goes between two residences near Big Bend Road. A nice grass parking area is provided and a sign has been erected in the past by a local Boy Scout troop.

This cemetery was associated with the Methodist Episcopal Church, which was formed no later than 1820, as is documented by the headstones of John and Sarah Taylor.

A deed for the property where the cemetery resides was recorded in Morgan County in 1838 showing Jacob Bromwell and Thomas Mitchell acquired the land in 1835. The earliest burial for the stones still remaining occurred in 1841. That grave happens for be for Revolutionary War veteran John Duke. Past records indicate there should be two more Revolutionary War veterans here, but there is no sign of their headstones.

At the time the Cowens recorded this cemetery, the condition of the cemetery was poor, with high weeds and poison ivy growing over everything. On my recent visit the cemetery grounds were in much better condition. The cemetery is being mowed regularly and most stones were still standing. There are broken stones on the ground and most stones need to be cleaned and straightened.

This transcription was performed by Carl and Janet Cowen in August of 1965 and is used with permission given me by Janet Cowen to publish it on the web. This cemetery has been inactive since 1900.

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.
