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.

appear to be very scattered without definite rows, though some of that may

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
