DICKERSON CEMETERY
Marion Township, Hendricks County, Indiana
SW ¼ of Sec 21, T16N R2W
Visited July 7, 2005

Directions:
It would be wise to use a GPS to find this cemetery.  Ask permission from the farmer (currently Truesdell Meece). The cemetery is on the east side of SR 75, south of the 90° turn at 350N.  Just south of the bridge over the creek is a farm drive and gate. Walk east on the drive up the hill.  Walk through the field, heading east and slightly north to the projection of trees.  Follow the tree line on the east side of the projection north, then east.  At the corner, enter the woods.  Walk northeast between the two creeks. The cemetery is at the triangle where they meet. 

Corners:
NW: N39°48.567’ W86°38.816’
SE: N39°48.550’ W86°38.800’

Approximate Center:
N39°48.559 W86°38.808’ or
N394834 W863848

Condition:
This cemetery is in the woods at the point where the creek splits.  The ground is well drained and the stones are reasonably level.  Lilies and myrtle cover the ground completely.  The cemetery is wire fenced, but trees have fallen and bent it down in places. There are many tree limbs in the cemetery, and at least two tablet stones have fallen due to them.  Only one of the stack stones has fallen. The tablets that are standing are mostly level.  There are about six tablet stones that have fallen and are sinking face up, probably due to being hit by trees.
