Index of Methodist (Spider Hill) Cemetery, Wells County, Indiana

Read by Jim Cox & Penny Baughman North - March 2012

NOTE: Additional information was provided by Wells County Public Library's Genealogy Department.

Methodist Cemetery (also known as Spider Hill Cemetery and Rockford Methodist Cemetery) is on County Road 500 West, north of County Road 200 West, in Rock Creek Township. The original introduction states: "The ground for Methodist Cemetery (also known as Spider Hill) was purchased in 1861 from the Schnolity family. The Methodist Church was erected here in 1867/8 then was later moved to Rockford, Indiana. Later this Church was abandoned and the congregation moved to its present site, a short distance north of the old cemetery. Eliza Young was buried here in 1824. Orginal data was compiled by Mr. Clarence Minniear a member of the Wells County Historical Society." The cemetery is no longer associated with the church and the Spider Hill Cemetery people stress this fact and the name change.
