From I-70 in Greenfield take State Road #9 north about a half mile. Turn left or west onto 300 North and continue, turning right or north onto 50 East Road. The cemetery will be on the left or west side of the road after about a half mile.

This burial site was established as a family cemetery in the 1850s and continued until about 1899, judging from the burial list. The cemetery is named for Logan Alford who owned the land when he was buried there in 1887.

The cemetery was neglected for many years and is currently being restored by the Cemetery Commission of Hanford County. More information may be attained by contacting Hancock County Cemetery Commission, Greenfield, Indiana, 46140.

Information compiled by tombstone inscription and contains all visible burials, which I completed on Jul 07, 2007.

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.
