Purviance Cemetery
Huntington County, Indiana

Lat: 40° 43' 18"N, Lon: 85° 30' 26"W

Contributed by Ellen Callahan, Jul 20, 2002, last edited Apr 05, 2007 [gingerabbit2@hotmail.com]. Total records = 163.

Purviance Cemetery is located on 300W about one mile south of Hwy 124, this is about two miles south of Lancaster, Indiana.

This is a list of tombstone inscriptions only. I went to the cemetery and made this list myself in April of 2001, the names of people with missing and unreadable markers were recorded in 1951-1952 by Thomas H. Anson, only their death dates will be mentioned. I used the older transcription to fill in the death date of worn markers. If you would like a photo of a certain tombstone I will be glad to e-mail a picture.

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.
