BALLARD CEMETERY
Brown Township, Hendricks County, Indiana
NE ¼ of Sec 6, T16N R2E
Visited August 2, 2005 and February 16, 2008

Directions:
This cemetery is on the east side of 1000E, south of 700N.  The black fence can be made out from either road. It is on the east side of a small creek.  It can be accessed from #6740 on 1000E. That driveway crosses the creek.  From the house, walk north to the cemetery.  This cemetery can also be accessed from the new subdivision, Branches, that is off of 700N.  From the drive in the subdivision that is the farthest west, you can walk across the grass to the cemetery.

Corners:
NW: N39°51.853’ W86°20.993’
SE: N39°51.839’ W86°20.986’

Approximate Center:
N39°51.846’ W86°20.990’ or
N395151 W862059

Condition:
This cemetery is fenced, sometimes mowed, and partially maintained.  A new tall black fence with a gate was recently installed, most likely due to the new subdivision being built within sight.  Hopefully vandalism will not be an issue in the future. Most stones are in decent condition. Most stack stones are level.  The tablets are leaning severely, but still standing.  There are many fieldstones marking graves.  Against a large rock, gravel was placed in a circle and lost tablets were placed there.  There are still quite a few footstones that appear to be in the correct places.  This could help return the lost stones to their original locations.
