Welcome to the home page for the Cass & Miami County Indiana Pioneer Cemetery Project. 

The Indiana Pioneer Cemeteries Restoration Project was begun in October 1997 as an effort to generate public awareness about the neglected pioneer cemeteries of Indiana.  The state of Indiana is home to thousands of abandoned or neglected pioneer cemeteries, the oldest of which now approach 200 years.   The goal of this project is to restore and preserve as many of these cemeteries as possible. This project was founded on the belief that we owe our pioneer ancestors a better monument than a forgotten grave amid bramble and thicket.  Hello, I am Debby Beheler coordinator of the Miami & Cass County INPCRP.  If you have any questions or comments about the project, please e-mail me .  If you would like to adopt an Indiana County for this project, please contact our State Coordinator, L. A. Clugh. Visit the INPCRP State Page

The idea behind the Indiana Pioneer Cemetery Restoration Project is not for the Coordinator to take charge of each Pioneer cemetery in the county, but rather to offer guidance and training to volunteers who would adopt a cemetery in the county as their project. If you are willing to be a project leader for a particular cemetery in Cass or Miami County please let me know.

When emailing me with questions or comments, please mention the county and name of the cemetery.  There are several cemeteries with duplicate names in surrounding counties.  I am involved with indexing of tombstone inscriptions and burials for many cemeteries in Cass, Miami and Howard Counties.  It is my philosophy that preservation of cemeteries must include recording of the data and images in the cemetery as well as physically cleaning, repairing and resetting of the monuments.
