Index of Old Mount Tabor Cemetery, Adams County, Indiana

Submitted by Lynn Sewell; Reformatted by Karin King

Read by Jim Cox & Penny B. North - October 2010

Old Mount Tabor Cemetery is off Piqua Road in St. Mary’s Township, about one mile southwest of Rivarre (Bobo). This cemetery (which is across the road from the New Mount Tabor Cemetery) is in very bad condition. An article by Richard Marland in the Decatur Daily Democrat says: "It is said all those people died at one time of cholera. There was an epidemic of cholera in Willshire, Ohio and the surrounding territory in 1848 and another in 1854. Only 7 survived the 1854 period."

Note: This copy was given to me in 1994, by my cousin, Frances Newby.
