MARVEL CEMETERY
Brown Township, Hendricks County, Indiana
NE ¼ of the NW ¼ of Sec 29, T17N R2E
Visited August 2, 2005

Directions:
This cemetery is on the north side of Wilson Road, just west of Jules Lane.  It can be accessed through the west woods of Jules Lane or from Wilson Road.  From house #10678 on Wilson Road, go behind the house, over the creek and up the gas pipeline trail.  The cemetery is in the woods to the east and is south of the field.  The wire fence and a small marker in the cemetery are difficult to find.

Corners:
NW: N39°53.700’ W86°19.842’
SE: N39°53.697’ W86°19.841’

Approximate Center:
N39°53.699’ W86°19.842’ or
N395342 W861951

Condition:
This cemetery is partially fenced but not mowed or maintained.  The small wire fence is down in many places.  A small metal marker reads “The Marvels/ Robert & Sarah.”  A small fieldstone was also noted. The husband and wife were some of the first settlers of this area (Trader’s Point) and walked from Delaware in the early 1800s to get here.  There is an interesting article in the Danville Library that is an interview of their descendant, the one who placed the marker.
