STILWELL- bodies moved 1883

George; John and William STILWELL BODIES MOVED

Source: Saturday Evening Journal, June 30, 1883

The following is from the Waveland Call of last week The bodies of John D., Wm. M. and George Stillwell were taken from the Presbyterian cemetery here yesterday and removed to Oak Hill cemetery, Crawfordsville. John D. Stillwell's remains were laid to rest about 20 years ago in a cast iron case which was well preserved when taken up. This shows the superior quality of cast-iron over the wrought iron one. The remains of William had been resting in the Presbyterian cemetery for about thirteen years and those of George about two years.
