Union Township, Hendricks County, Indiana
South Edge of the SW ¼ of Sec 28, T17N R1W
Visited October 1, 2005

Directions:
This cemetery is on the southwest side of US 136, south of the bridge over Ross Ditch and north of the water tower.  It is north of Tri West High School.  The front can be seen from the road.

NW: N39°52.798’ W86°32.404’
SE: N39°52.783’ W86°32.309’

Approximate Center:
N39°52.791’ W86°32.357’ or
N395247 W863221

Condition:
This cemetery is partially fenced, mowed, but not maintained.  A steep ravine and creek border the north side of the cemetery.  Some stones are in danger of falling over the side.  This cemetery is being mowed, but not carefully.  Some hard-to-mow areas have been let go.  There are many large monuments that are leaning precariously.  Broken, leaning, and piled tablets are all over.  This cemetery needs to be restored soon.  Perhaps the high school could be a part of it.  There are over twenty victims of the 1873 cholera epidemic buried here.
