Little Family Cemetery
Bores put you in a mental cemetery while you are still walking.
~ Elsa Maxwell

Located at 2 miles southeast of Decatur in Washington Township, Adams County, Indiana on County Road 133.
It is back in a field about 1 1/2 miles at the horseshoe bend of the St. Mary's River. Most stones are gone.
