Index of Elm Grove Cemetery, Wells County, Indiana

Submitted by Penny L. North and Jim Cox

NOTE: The cemetery is on State Road 124, 1 mile east of Bluffton. It is in Harrison Township.

The original introduction to this cemetery index stated: “The ground for this cemetery was purchased from J. H. and Frank Smith in 1902 and was plotted for cemetery use in 1903. An article in the Evening News dated April 1, 1902 states fifty farm acres were bought by “the Elm Grove association for $3,700. It was sold to them by J.H.C. Smith, who last Saturday bought it off of Mr. Lipkey”.

Acording to the Evening News-Banner’s centennial edition, Joseph Painter was the first interment on August 11, 1902.
