Index of Roop (Carroll) Cemetery, Adams County, Indiana

Submitted by Margie Roop Pierce

This abandoned cemetery is located in St. Mary's Township, on the Piqua Road near the Indiana-Ohio line on a farm that was owned by Dr. John Carroll southeast of Decatur. It is in a field in a clump of trees. According to some, there are no stones left in the burial grounds. In 1980, Florence Gause's map of the cemetery noted there were once 25 stones, with a note that Williamson used the stones as disk weights. In 1994, Ian Miller, who was working on his Eagle Scout award, took pictures and there were still stones standing. In June 2010, a group of researchers was allowed access to the cemetery and found several stones.
