RAMSEY CEMETERY
Guilford Township, Hendricks County, Indiana
NW ¼ of Sec 23, T14N R1E
Visited July 30, 2005

Directions:
This cemetery is on the east side of 701E toward the end of the road.  It is directly east from the last house on the road, behind their barn. 

Corners:
NW: N39°38.316’ W86°23.732’
SE: N39°38.318’ W86°23.730’

Approximate Center:
N39°38.318’ W86°23.730’ or
N393819 W862344

Condition:
This cemetery is not fenced but is sometimes mowed and maintained.  There are no original stones as this is a very early cemetery.  Both stones are replacements.  The first is for Bartholomew Ramsey and his son William.  The death date for Bartholomew is listed as 1825, but the 1878 Atlas lists it as 1833.  It also says that he settled in 1814, but the Atlas says 1820, which makes more sense.  Bartholomew’s wife, Catherine, was born in 1787, so he was probably born around the same time.  His son, William, has no dates listed, but another of Bartholomew and Catherine’s sons was born in 1824, which would have been one of their last.  So William was probably born prior to 1824.  There is also a Revolutionary War military marker for William Ramsey (not to be confused with the son William). The dates are 1748-1836, so possibly Bartholomew’s father. Total there are three known graves in this cemetery. Both stones are in good condition.
