This large, beautiful cemetery overlooks one of the large streams of the county called Pipe Creek. It is now owned by the I.O.O.F. Lodge of Swayzee. The name of Thrailkill is an old one in this vicinity. A family by the name having lived across the road many years ago. Inquiry has not yet verified the idea that it received its name from this family but is generally accepted as true. The earliest date on a stone is Aug. 18, 1850 - Abraham Grindle son of Samuel Grindle who came to the township in 1849 or 1850. Whitson's History says, "Among the first deaths in the county were a child of Madison Allen, who was the first person buried in the Thrailkill Cemetery and a child of John Galbreath and a child of W. Francis Smith." This cemetery is in Section #2 of Sims Township on State Road #13.

The above was written by the DAR in the 1940's.

The grave of Abraham Grindle son of S. & M.A. Grindle is still in the old section of this cemetery. He died Aug. 18, 1850 aged 4m.2d. This is the earliest grave I found in this cemetery. As of October 1994, every stone was read in the entire cemetery.

This cemetery has been worked on more than once. In the old section there are indications, at some point in time, this cemetery was almost destroyed. In many places, the gravestones are set in cement. They are placed in rows of like names and possibly of families. I believe this was done back in the early 1900's due to the appearance of the cement. The current caretaker told me that in the last few years he had repaired and reset many stones. I was very impressed with the care given to this old cemetery.

It is still in use today. The township provides the trustee with the funds to keep up the maintenance and care of this cemetery. There is still plenty of room for expansion. Three sides are bordered by farmland, with State Road #13 bordering the west side.

On July 4, 1910 the GAR erected a monument in the center of this cemetery: "In Loving Remembrance of our dead and living heroes of the War of 1861 - 1865"
I attempted to read this cemetery in sections, that I created, as their was no designations of areas on the plat map. The map on the following page of this book will help you locate the area of the grave you seek. I didn't attempt to read these in rows for in some places this would have been impossible. The spelling is exactly as I found it on the stones.
