I do not know where the cemeteries are but this info might help.

Delaware is where highway 258 touches the Green River at the corner where Henderson, Daviess & McLean counties meet.

On the 1876 Historical Atlas it shows just south of Delaware the farms of J.A. Harrison 178 acres, F. Harrison 180 acres, W. M. Harrison 110 acres & H. R. Wilson acreage not listed. Some of the property runs over into McLean County.

Delaware is a community or populated place (Class Code U6) located in Daviess County at latitude 37.684 and longitude -87.404 The elevation is 404 feet. Delaware appears on the Delaware U.S. Geological Survey Map.
