The below information was submitted by Steve Frevert. Thank you Steve!
Steve wrote concerning the research on the below transcriptions, "I'm attaching a transcription of Horham Cemetery in Manchester Twp. for use on the Dearborn Co. website. It is located on the east side of Konradi Road just north of its intersection with Bunnell Road at the north edge of Manchester Twp. I did not read the cemetery; this was sent to me by a relative who got it from someone else, and I re-typed it exactly as written for you. Because of that, the meanings of a couple things are not clear to me- "RO" and "H" mentioned with the footstones. I have left them in.
Presumably the cemetery was read in 1982 by the people named at the bottom. Dick Horrum, who sent me this list, visited the cemetery in 1988. He said it was absolutely covered with myrtle. Richardson is the name of the family who lived in Daniel Horham's house at that time, and I assume they are the ones who read the cemetery. I hope to visit it this summer when I get down to Dearborn Co."
NOTE: Steve sent me another transcription for Horham Cemetery that was read in 1999 by a relative. This is included here at the end of the 1982 transcription.

This very old cemetery is completely overgrown with large trees and crepe myrtle. There are a large number of firled stone markers in addition to those copied. There are probably additional markers not found on this visit.

**Below is another transcription that was made in 1999. Steve writes;
"It (Horham Cemetery) is on private land off Konradi Rd., completely overgrown by trees and brush. A distant relative, Alwyn Horrom Reuther, transcribed the cemetery in 1999 and gave me permission to contribute it to the Dearborn Co. website."

Slabs of Stone
Note: Charlotte Ann and George Monroe Horrum have a double stone at the farthest end of the cemetery.
Mercy Ann Moss married Alexander McKee on 10-2-1839 in Dearborn County, Indiana (found on Internet). Mercy Ann Moss is the sister of Jemima Morss , who married William Blodgett, brother of Polly Blodgett Horham.
The Bennets, and Glenns are buried in the cemetery, but it is unknown what their relationship is to the Horhams. Possibly neighbors. Robert Bennet was said by Charles Richardson's letter to be a neighbor.
