CUNDIFF CEMETERY
Union Township, Hendricks County, Indiana
SW Corner of the SE ¼ of the SW ¼ of Sec 21, T17N R1W
Visited August 4, 2005

Directions:
This cemetery is on the northwest corner of the intersection of 900N and 75W, on the west side of SR 39, north of Lizton.  It is right along the road.

Corners:
NW: N39°53.622’ W86°32.252’
SE: N39°53.616’ W86°32.241’

Approximate Center:
N39°53.619’ W86°32.247’ or
N395337 W863215

Condition:
This cemetery is fenced on two sides, mowed, but not maintained.  Almost all the stones are tablets and are broken, fallen, and many piled against a tree. One row of tablets was stuck in wet concrete, so some tops have broken off.  Others have fallen out of their slotted bases and need to be mortared back in. One small stack stone is sliding off its base. 
Probable Story: Eight members of the Leak family were buried on the George Bailey farm, which was most likely on the north side of the intersection of 75W and 950N.  In 1969, the graves and stones of six Leaks were brought from the farm to Cundiff Cemetery.  The stones of James and Elizabeth Leak were also brought, but the graves were not moved.  The field was later plowed.
