Mathis Graveyard
Jefferson County, Indiana

Contributed by Jackie Owen, May 2000 [edjackieowen@wmconnect.com]. Total records = 5.

This graveyard used to be located on Scott's Ridge Road east of Canaan, IN. It was located on the old Mathis Farm. To my knowledge only 1 or 2 stones, if that are still there, but they are unreadable. The information that follows is taken from the DAR list of the 1940's.

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.
