Johnson-Clark Cemetery

Today's Walk Through the Tombstones is at Johnson-Clark Cemetery located in the Restle Natural Area owned by the Sycamore Land Trust just off of Dittemore Road out of Ellettsville, Indiana.

GPS Coordinates: 39.294985, -86.560325

This small cemetery only has four interments, two of which are listed on the same headstone.  Records for the Monroe County History Cemetery had the location of this cemetery about a quarter of a mile away from its actual location, but a call from the Sycamore Land Trust property owners to the History Center reset that location.  We were lucky enough to get a chance to go out to the cemetery with a member of the History Cemetery to take a look.

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

Our first stop is at the grave of Doctor Frank J. Restle.

Born: 1927
Died: 1980

His wife, Barbara, is listed on the reverse of the headstone, though, I believe that she is still alive as there is no death date shown.

This headstone is very unusual as I have never seen one like it before.  It is carved in such a way as to almost represent a flame.  It stands out quite nicely in the wooded area.

I believe that his parents are buried next to him, Frank J. Restle (1898-1965) and Isabel J. Restle (1899-1967).  I have no information on whether or not he had any children.

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

Here we have the grave of Frank J. Restle.

Born: 1898
Died: 1965

And that of his wife, Isabel J. Restle.

Born: 1899
Died: 1967

This headstone is next to the above mentioned Frank J. Restle (1927-1980).  I believe that the younger Frank is their son.  I have no further information on any of the family.

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

And finally, we stop at the grave of Robert G. Clark.

Born: May 1848
Died: October 1848

He was the son of John Clark (?-?) and Nancy Clark (?-?).

As you can see by the picture, there are two headstones, though from deciphering the original headstone, I am not certain that they are for the same person.  The inscription on the older headstone is as follows:  






"Robert G. Clark
A son of John Clark and
Nancy Clark
Was born -----
The 10, 1855
And died ----
The 15, 185-"

I believe that there may have been two Clark sons buried next to each other, both having died very young.  

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

I hope that you have enjoyed your walk through Johnson-Clark Cemetery.

Please visit the listing at Find-A-Grave.

Let me know if you have questions or information about any of the graves listed here.

Greene County Chapel Cemetery

Today's Walk Through the Tombstones is at Greene County Chapel Cemetery located at the Monroe County/Greene County line.  In fact, it would appear that part of the cemetery is in Monroe County just by looking at it.

We came across this cemetery while heading out to Fowler Pumpkin Farm for the day.  I hadn't made any plans to stop at any along the way, but we had time.


GPS Coordinates: 39.08722, -86.68324

This cemetery has approximately 774 interments.  I am not sure when the cemetery was established, as I have not yet found any records showing that information.  It is, however, a current cemetery with lots of space for future interments.

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


Our first stop is at the grave of Martha Alexander.

Born: 1839
Died: 1909

She is listed on the same headstone as Asa B. Alexander.  I assume that he is her husband.

Born: 1833
Died: 1866








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


Here is the grave of William B. Alexander.

Born: March 27, 1827
Died: April 27, 1896

He served in the Civil War in the 31st Regiment, Company H.  











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


Now we stop at the grave of Reverend Malden Baker.

Born: September 21, 1802
Died: April 6, 1894

There was this small plaque on his headstone that says he was a United Methodist Minister.


"The third migration of settlers occurred in 1834 from Calvert County, Maryland. This party was led by the Reverend Malden and Eliza Cullenbaugh Baker, and included the families of Thomas and Nicea Greaves Breeden, William and Christiana Greaves Fowler, Moses and Drusilla Graves Whaley, Joseph and Sophia Jane Hall Whaley, Samuel Hite, Cleverly Day, and David Coster. This migration appears to be the direct result of a schism in the Methodist Church in the United States. In 1834, an open and incredibly heated disagreement split the Methodist Episcopal Church in the United States between traditional Methodists Episcopals (who believed in a strong centralized conference in Baltimore, and a decidedly pro-slavery doctrine); and a group calling themselves Methodist Protestants (who protested a strong centralized conference in favor of a stronger lay representation in the governing of church affairs; and who were passionately anti-slavery). This schism over slavery was common throughout churches in the South at the time. Upon arrival in the free territory in Indiana, the group began holding religious services calling themselves the Calvert Society. From 1834 to 1839 the Calvert Society met throughout the community in their own homes and in the homes of friends and family members who had previously arrived from Maryland and North Carolina. Not until 1839 was the decision made to build a permanent structure. According to church records there was a debate as to whether to build the church in Stanford or 'on the hill' west of Stanford. The hill was chosen, and in 1839 Joseph Whaley and Allen Sparks deeded the property for the Church, and the first log church in the area was built. The Calvert Society, feeling they were on the 'right' side of the anti-slavery issue, kept the traditional name of the Methodist Church, calling it the Methodist Episcopal Church. The early history of the Maryland Ridge church includes a story of a group of ├ČIndians' who had been camped along White River near Bloomfield during the following winter. They had come to the Church during a terrible blizzard and asked to stay until the blizzard had passed in order to keep their families from freezing. This is important to note because while the Church was the first in the community and the area, it was not the first built in the county and other churches would have been closer, but the ├ČIndians' appeared to believe this church would take them in. Church records tell us that for three to four nights, the Indians stayed in the Church, and while the women and children slept behind blankets hung near the fireplace, the men, both Indians and settlers, stayed up drinking and dancing each night with one Indian staying awake and sober to watch over the group. Such was the reputation and the nature of the settlers of the Maryland Ridge community"  (source: The Freedom,Indiana, Facebook page)

Rose Hill Cemetery Video Walking Tour

Today's Walk Through the Tombstones is our first video walking tour!

It takes place at Rose Hill Cemetery in Bloomington, Indiana.  We have been here several times already, but this is our first video walk.   

Our first photo walk is here.  

Our second photo walk is here.

Our third photo walk is here.  

We plan to make at least one more trip to Rose Hill for a video walk, but I am not sure when as I would like to get to as many cemeteries as we can while we have nice weather.

I hope you enjoy your Walk Through Rose Hill Cemetery!


As a side note:  When we were walking through Rose Hill, I made mention of the Woodmen of the World.  At the time, I said that they were a fraternal organization much like the Freemasons.  Well, that isn't entirely correct.  While, when they were established, they were a fraternal organization, they became much more than that.  They are still in business today.  Please read more about them at this Wiki Page and visit their website here.

New Feature coming to A Walk Through the Tombstones!

Yes, you read that right!  

There will be a whole new feature starting soon my blog!


The passion that I have for these locals cemeteries just keeps growing.  I spend a lot of time researching those that are buried within these cemeteries.  I look for old photos of those interred as well as of the cemetery itself.  The history that surrounds the cemetery, those buried within and the area around them is fascinating to me.  There is so much to learn.  With that in mind, my daughter and I have decided to start a video blog as well.  

A Walk Through the Tombstones will have a YouTube channel soon and each cemetery that we have visited, as long as we can get back to them, will have a video walk through.  I am going to try to get as much history as I can together for each cemetery and some of those buried in them.  

Please keep an eye out for any updates to these listings.  I hope to get started this weekend and as long as I can figured out how to edit the videos and get them published correctly, we should be up and running next week.  

Thank you so much for visiting and please check back!


UPDATE!  

Check the side bar of my blog for the link to my newest page - A Walk Through Our Video Blog.  Here you will be able to find all of our videos for our cemetery walks.  I hope that you enjoy!

Mt. Ebal Re-Visit
