MEREDITH LEACH CEMETERY (LEACH #1)
Union Township, Hendricks County, Indiana
NW ¼ of Sec 5, T16N R1W
Visited October 1, 2005

Directions:
This cemetery is on the east side of 200W, south of 725N.  The property is owned by the family across the road (#7034).  Across the road and a little south from #7034 is a farm drive that goes along the north side of a property fence.  A field is to the north of the drive.  Follow the drive east until it ends.  Walk south along the edge of the field until you reach the fencerow.  Walk east along the fencerow.  The cemetery is just on the other side of the fence in a line of trees between two fields.  (This cemetery is much easier to access after the crops are out.)

Condition:
This cemetery is not fenced, mowed, or maintained.  It is in a thin strip of trees between two fields.  It is grown up with trees and brush.  Many of the graves are covered with concrete. A medium sized stack for Meredith and Eliza Leach is level, as is an old tablet for Meredith.  There is a small tablet for Frances Leach, which is also standing. A tablet for James Leach is leaning on the concrete pad.  No other headstones were found, including the ones for Meredith’s mother (Mary) and father (John).
