Shank Cemetery
Huntington County, Indiana

Contributed by Ellen Callahan, Jul 20, 2002, last edited Apr 05, 2007 [gingerabbit2@hotmail.com]. Total records = 95.

It is located on Mayne Rd about a half mile south of 900N. This is about a mile southeast of the town of Roanoke, Indiana.

This is a list of only tombstone inscriptions, I went to the cemetery and did this list myself in the spring of 2002, the names of people with markers missing or unreadable were recorded in 1951-1952 by Thomas H. Anson, only their date death will be mentioned. I used the older transcription to fill in the death date of worn markers. Mr. Anson makes a note that there are 30 to 50 unmarked graves.

A free online library of cemetery records from thousands of cemeteries across the world, for historical and genealogy research.

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.
