The Herbert Cemetery is located in Lieber State Park about one quarter mile west of the entrance to Hulman Beach. It has been fenced and is maintained by the State of Indiana. This Cemetery was used from 1850-1908. Joseph and Maria Herbert are buried there as well as two grandsons Frank and Joseph. Lewis Herbert ( son of Joseph and Marian) was buried there in 1903 by the side of his two sons and when Mary Herbert (mother of Lewis) died in 1941 he was moved beside her in the Cloverdale Cemetery. With the exception of six graves all others bear the inscription of the Herbert Family.
