Brick Chapel, Putnam Co. IN burial rec's

I recently received from the Putnam County Public Library in Greencastle, Indiana, a couple pages from a register of the Brick Chapel cemetery that lists Slavens burials. I'm passing along the information in case some of the dates aren't already known:

Slavens, Elizabeth, w/o Reuben b. Oct. 1, 1796, d. Sept. 26, 1846
Slavens, Henry G. d. Apr. 2, 1833, age 10m
Slavens, Hiram b. Feb. 11, 1816, d. Jan. 15, 1893
Slavens, Hiram B. d. May 5, 1859, age 56y6m21d
Slavens, John (Dr.), h/o Sarah b. Mar. 1, 1811, d. Oct. 3, 1905
Slavens, Keziah, w/o Reuben d. Dec. 1, 1872 age 68y22d
Slavens, Lucy B. d/o Hiram & Nancy, d. Oct. 9, 1879 age 19y9m
Slavens, Nancy N. Allen w/o Hiram d. Oct. 31, 1875 age 47y9m
Slavens, Reuben, h/o Elizabeth & Keziah, b. Nov. 9, 1782 d. Feb. 14, 1872
Slavens, Sarah Warden w/o John (Dr.) b. June 15, 1818 d. Feb. 25, 1897

As always, take the information with a grain of salt. For example, the birth date of Elizabeth, wife of Reuben, doesn't agree with the date in Slavens book-- and it would also make her not quite 11 years old when she got married!

I will be continuing to work on Putnam County records, and am planning a trip to Indiana in October for research. I'll keep the list informed on what I turn up!
