Earl also submitted this concerning a burial ground located in Manchester Twp. Thank You Earl!


There is a Cundale family burial ground and it is located on Possum Ridge
Road off State Road # 48 west of Wrights Corner in Manchester Twp, Dearborn County, IN.

This is verified by when, John Cundale and wife sold land to Daniel and
Abigail (wife) ROBERTS, 14 Nov 1825, Dearborn County Deed Records Book "A"
pages 515 and 516. Daniel and his wife later sold this same land to Sarah
Ann Thompson, 9 Apr 1866. In the deed, it stipulated "Except two (2) rods
square of ground in the above decribed tract convering the site of the
Family Burying Ground, situate on the Ridge East of the Brick Dwelling
House, which two (2) rods square of gound the grantor herein reserves to
himself and his heirs forever, for burial purposes, together with the right
of ingness thereto and egness therefrom and to inclose the said burying
ground with a stone wall or other fence and keep this same in repair" The
tract was located in the south half of the East half of the North East
quarter of Section Ten (10) Township five (5) of Range Two (2).


Platt Cemetery in Manchester Twp. Details and Interments
Thank you, Kathy Ross
Platt Cemetery in Manchester Twp. Photographs
(Platt Cemetery is not indentified on the map to the right, but by the above article by Kathy Ross, this would be the cemetery located just to the east of Manchester Meadows(Section 18 on Map). However both Kathy and the database for the State of Indiana, Cemetery Locator state that this cemetery is located on Shaeffer Road. So is this Platt Cemetery shown on map?).

Horham Cemetery
Thank you, Steve Frevert
(This burial place is not shown on the map below. By Steve's description above, this cemetery would be located in Section 16 on map, at the intersection of Konradi and Bonnell Roads.).
