DAVIS CEMETERY
Liberty Township, Hendricks County, Indiana
W ½ of the SW ¼ of Sec 5, T14N R1E
Visited July 13, 2005

Directions:
This cemetery is at the end of Lakewood Trails Court in Lakewood Trails subdivision off of 400E, south of US 40.  An easement exists between house numbers 5430 and 5435.  The small, gated plot is visible from the cul-de-sac.

Corners:
NW: N39°40.962’ W86°27.171’
SE: N39°40.953’ W86°27.162’

Approximate Center:
N39°40.953’ W86°27.162’ or
N394057 W862710

Condition:
This cemetery is fenced, mowed, and maintained.  The current homeowner of #5430 reset the stones a few years ago and has been maintaining it ever since. He said that the stones had been scattered and he reset them mostly in a row.  There were few slotted bases to guide placement.  Therefore, most stones are likely in the wrong location. The Davis family’s founder in Indiana was Evan Davis, Sr. (wife Rebecca), both buried in the cemetery.  His son Evan Jr and wife Lucy are also buried there. In the 1878 Atlas, there is an illustration of the farm and residence of David Wesley Davis, as well as a biography of him.  (David was the son of Evan Sr.) Two of David’s children, Charles W. and Mary L. are also buried in the cemetery.
