In Reply to: Hinchman Cemetery by Barbara Ann Guyton of 537

Hi, Barbara. I have a copy of a book titled "Hancock County, Indiana Tombstone Inscriptions: One Hundred Years, 1833 - 1933" by Sue Baker, CGRS. On Page 202 of that book it reads: "The Hinchman Cemetery is in section nine located south of 100 south on Steel's Ford Road between State Road 9 and Morristown Pike. Situated on a hill on the north side of a remote and winding road, vandals have taken a great toll of the gravemarkers. Of the one hundred forty four catalogued in the 1960s, only fifteen remain today. The grounds are maintained by county funds." I was there about a year ago and the cemetery had been cut and there were still some headstones left but I know some of them had been moved from their original positions. Maybe by the people who were cutting the grass. It isn't in too bad of shape compared to some I've seen. There are several Elsburys buried there. The ones listed in the above book are as follows:
