VANNICE CEMETERY
Marion Township, Hendricks County, Indiana
NE ¼ of Sec 30, T16N R2W
Visited June 29, 2005 and December 27, 2007

Directions:
You will need permission from the Charles Brown family to enter this cemetery.  The easiest way to find it is to have them take you there.  The house is on Clay Road between CR 200N and CR 400N.  The house number is 2887 and is on the east side of the road.  Directly west across Clay Road from the house is a gravel lane.  It leads back to the barns and silos.  Follow the lane west until the silos, then turn south into the field.  Go southwest through the field to an opening in the woods. A swampy pond will be on the south side and the cemetery is in the weeds to the north.

Corners:
NW: N39°48.160’ W86°40.709’
SE: N39°48.152’ W86°40.701’

Approximate Center:
N39°48.156’ W86°40.705’ or
N394809 W864042

Condition:
This cemetery is overgrown with weeds and in poor condition.  It stretches to the northeast in between two low wet areas.There are some nice, good-sized stones in this cemetery that have fallen or will fall soon. Every tablet stone is either on the ground or leaning against a tree. The burials appear to be very scattered without definite rows, though some of that may be just the displacement of tablet stones from their original locations.  There are also many footstones with initials not corresponding with any known burials as well as many fieldstone markers.  

All known burials plus individual stone photos can be found at Find-A-Grave .
