Butler Cemetery
Whitaker, Morgan County, Indiana

Lat: 39° 25' 44"N, Lon: 86° 36' 43"W
Ray Twp, T12N R2W Sec 35

Contributed by Jeff Curtis, Nov 09, 2006 [jefftcurtis@earthlink.net]. Total records = 12.

From SR67 just east of Whitaker, go north on Arthur Rd. (CR 950) for 3.5 miles, jog left at Base Rd., then continue north on Schuler Rd. (CR 1000W) for 0.3 mile to the driveway on the right. The cemetery is about 0.1 mile south of the house.

The cemetery is east of the creek that follows the road, and it is 0.2 mile north of Base Rd., across the creek from Schuler Rd. The house behind which the cemetery is located is abandoned.

This appears to be a very old family cemetery.

I have transcribed, with permission, from work completed in Mar of 1968 by Carl and Janet Cowen, when they read all existing and legible stones.
