Black Cemetery, Lexington Indiana

Black Cemetery, Lexington Indiana

This long-neglected cemetery has been cleaned, restored and fenced by the Scott County cemetery Commission. It is located in Lexington Township, just west of county road 900 E. It is in the southeast quarter of Section 27, T. 3N., R. 8E. This tract of 160 acres was entered Dec.29, 1829, by Rev. Calvin W. Ruter, a pioneer Christian preacher. In 1889 the land was owned by Ann Black, hence the name of the cemetery today. There are only seven marked graves, but we were able to count over 25 graves marked only by rough head and flat stones, and sunken spots in the ground.

Indiana Genealogy is being developed as a genealogical and historical resource for your personal use. While the original thought was to provide this website as a resource for finding genealogy and historical data concerning Indiana on the web, we have begun adding specific data to this site for your personal use.

In an attempt to further expand our offerings and refine your search, we have begun the creation of county websites. Those county sites can be found in the list of links to the right. While only a small portion of Indiana counties are presently listed, the amount of data for those counties is quite impressive.

The “Search Indiana Genealogy” search on the right side will search all of the Indiana Genealogy website, but will not search the data linked to from our offsite data pages.
