Index of Jacob Hively Cemetery, Whitley County, Indiana

Submitted by Penny L. North and Jim Cox

NOTE: According to Nellie Raber's Eternal Cities of Thorncreek, Jacob Hively was the head of one of seven families which emigrated together from Ohio to Thorncreek Township, Whitley County, Indiana in 1836. The farm that Hively bought was on the southwest quarter of Section 9, and the family burial site was on the northwest corner of the farm. In 1960 there were three substantial gravestones standing, but it was also noted that there were several sunken graves without markers. Today, all the stones have been removed and the area is now a cultivated field.
