****NOTE*****
Could not find the stones for John Morss or Hannah Manlief. They were on a list in Dearborn County Library. May have fallen and gotten buried over time. Will go back in Spring and check again. There are also a great number of fieldstones and unreadable stones. Cemetery is in wooded area with alot of overgrowth.
