This cemetery, dated 1882 on a large iron overhead gate with the Willhite name, is just north of Wingate, Indiana. Leave Wingate to stop sign, sharp right turn about 2 miles on Old 55. Left on 750 north about 1/4 to 1/2 mile. The cemetery is on the left side of the road. These are the known burials in the Willhite Cemetery.

In 1831 President came up from Jefferson Co Indiana. In 1834 President was in Coal Creek Township, for a while. (He kept this land and went over to Walnut twp. and then came back). Have heard the older folks say that an Indian Burial Ground was here before the white man came. That would have explained so many dual burials or bones found when a grave is prepared. As recorded, a gypsy child was buried with President Willhite's permission and the date is not known. May have forgotten other names, but the burial names recorded are correct from markers, death records, diaries, Bible, word of mouth by great Aunts, Great Uncles, Uncles, Aunts, my mother, and other friends and relatives. Walter Willhite did tell of his mother, Mollie Bagby Willhite, and could not definitely point out the exact spot where she is buried. He descended from Frank Bagby, as does Capitola Smith Wills who died in 1989.

Mrs. Garnal Lee Scott, RR1 Box 168, Crawfordsville, Indiana 47933, searches, researches, and keeps records for the cemetery burials up to date. She is a silent trustee, a genealogist and constantly searching all descending lines.

The first recorded trustees were in Deed book 67, page 123, dated Jun 6, 1891. They were Henry P Willhite, Ebenezer Vanscoy, and John Harmon. It was the earliest known attempt to preserve the cemetery as the land of my great grandparents, that was passing from their Heirs. So, into their hands and future trustees comes the trust of this hallowed land. Virginia Boze Scott. Trustee, Willhite Cemetery Sep 2, 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.
