Burials Relocated from Monroe County, Indiana Cemeteries By Lake Monroe (1960)

Submitted by Randi Richardson

PREFACE: In 1960 when construction began on Lake Monroe, it was necessary to relocate burial remains from several area cemeteries including the Daniel E. Fox; Russell Mitchell; Blackwell; Hughs; Macy W. Malott; Goodman; Cutright and Shields. The relocation was undertaken by the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers.

At the time of relocation, many of the burial plots were identified only by unmarked fieldstones. Information from those burials identified by a tombstone was compiled into a list that included name of the deceased, the original cemetery name and the new place of burial. Two of the relocated burials were made in the Clear Creek Cemetery; the remainder in the New Allen’s Creek Cemetery in Polk Township.

Information about the displaced cemeteries and the relocated burials is noted in County Cemeteries of Monroe which was compiled in 1993, revised in 1998, and published by the Monroe County Historical Society. It should be noted, however, that the list compiled by the Army Corps of Engineers does not always coincide with the information noted in the book, nor does it include all the information noted in the book. For example, the book includes specific birth and death dates, but the Corps’ list only includes the year of death. To learn more about these burials, please check with the research library at the Monroe County History Center in Bloomington, Indiana.
