Monument City Memorial Cemetery
Huntington County, Indiana

Lat: 40 47 09"N, 85 36 10"W
Polk Township Sect 31

Contributed by Ellen Callahan, Aug 08, 2002 [gingerabbit2@hotmail.com]. Total records = 789.

Located in Polk township on 800W just south of 250S.

This is a list of only tombstone inscriptions, I did this list myself in April of 2001, recent burials have been added. There are about 56 plain markers.

There is a monument in the front of the cemetery that is a memorial to the enlisted men from Polk township who died during the civil war. It was first erected about 1869 near the center of the township on the north bank of the Salamonie River. In 1900 it was to moved to the town of Monument City.

About 1965 this cemetery was relocated and the town razed to make way for the Salamonie reservoir. The monument was relocated to this cemetery and it has a list of soldiers with their regiments and death dates. It is not known where they are buried.
