Chitwood Cemetery

Today's Walk Through the Tombstones is at Chitwood Cemetery in Unionville, Indiana.  



I don't have any GPS Coordinates for this particular cemetery.  It is located on State Road 45 just outside of Unionville in what used to be a lovely corn field.  The land has been cleared and it looks as if some construction had been started.  No one was there the day that we stopped by so I am not sure if it is considered to be on private property or not.  There are no signs to indicate as such.  I am not sure how large this cemetery was to begin with as there are only a few headstones and some base stones.  

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Chambersville Cemetery

Today's Walk Through the Tombstones is at the Chambersville Cemetery in Spencer, Indiana.



We stopped at this cemetery located on State Road 46 just before McCormick's Creek State Park on September 26, 2015.  I believe that there are actually two cemeteries at this location, the Chambersville Cemetery and Mount Olive Church Cemetery as there are two different signs.  We didn't go to the church cemetery side on this trip as we were on our way to go apple picking and didn't want to take too much time.  This cemetery is listed as having a little over 2500 interments.  This likely includes the ones on the church side as well.
