SPRING HILL OR CARTERSBURG CEMETERY
Liberty Township, Hendricks County, Indiana
NW Corner of the SE ¼ of Sec 25, T15N R1W
Visited July 13, 2005

Directions:
This cemetery is on the south side of Cartersburg Road, north of 350S. It is large and visible from the road. 

Corners:
NW: N39°42.569’ W86°28.524’
SE: N39°42.546’ W86°28.439’

Approximate Center:
N39°42.558’ W86°28.482’ or
N394233 W862829

Condition:
This cemetery is mowed, minimally maintained and partially fenced. The west side has modern burials and the east side is the old section.  There are quite a few tablets face up on the ground and many leaning as well.  Some stack stones have fallen, most likely pushed over by vandals, as the bottom sections are still reasonably level.  There are also some tops that have disappeared, possibly as souvenirs.  The stones in this cemetery need to be reset properly before more disappear.

When this cemetery was laid out it was called the Guynn Cemetery.  Here is the first legal description:
"A part of the SE 1/4 of Section 25 Township 15 North of Range one West, Beginning in the Southern boundary line of the Danville and Cartersburgh Gravel Road one chain and thirty one links S. 70 degrees East from the intersection of said Southern boundary line, with the north line of said SE 1/4; (said intersection being six chains seventy-five links east of the center of said Section)  Thence S 68 degrees E. on the southern boundary line of said road.
