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.
