Yankeetown Cemetery
Huntington County, Indiana

Rock Creek Twp, Sec 34
Lat: 40° 45 '23"N, Lon: 85° 23 '20"W

Contributed by Ellen Callahan, Jun 28, 2002 [gingerabbit2@hotmail.com]. Total records = 72.

This cemetery is is on the south side of 500S, about 3/4 mile west of Hwy 3, this is just a mile north of Plum Tree, Indiana.

This is a list only of the tombstones, I did this transcription myself in the summer of 2001. I have compared it to a transcription done by Thomas H. Anson in 1951-1952 to complete any inscriptions of worn or damaged tombstones. He also leaves a note of'around 15 unmarked graves'. Most tombstones are in poor condition.

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.
