Short Graveyard
Jefferson County, Indiana

Shelby Township, Sec. 25

This graveyard is located East of Canaan, Indiana on East Prong Road about 2 miles from Hwy. 62, on the east side of the road way up on Blackhawk Hill, about 1/8 of a mile before you get to the intersection of East Prong & Lonnis Hill Road.

I wouldn't have made it up there, or found it, if it weren't for the property owner taking me up on his 4 wheeler. This was a beautiful spot.

I surveyed this graveyard with the help of George Backus on Nov 01, 2000.

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.
