Gardner and Perry Cemeteries: Notes
The Gardner cemetery is on the farm once owned by Robert Gardner, in the hedgerow near the road. It is abandoned and neglected. Most of the stones are down, broken or both; some are partially buried.
The plot appears on some lists as being on the Mabel Fitch farm, and also on the Frank Gardner farm.
The Perry cemetery was likewise located on the Perry farm, but all the Perry family burials were reinterred in Rushville, leaving only one remaining stone to be read. The compilers however could not find it.
