Collier Cemetery

Today's Walk Through the Tombstones is at Collier Cemetery in Monroe County, Indiana.




This is a small cemetery is located just off Collier Cemetery Road.  It is fenced in with a chain link fence and is well-maintained.  We visited on August 23, 2015.  I haven't yet been able to find any information on when this cemetery was first established or whether or not there was a Collier Homestead anywhere nearby.

Our first stop is at the grave of James Henry Collier.

Born: 1845

He was the son of Stephen Collier (1798-1883) and Anna Burke Collier (?-?).  His father is buried in Collier Cemetery, but I am not sure where his mother is buried.
