Inscription.

Birch - Colvert Cemetery

Also Known As

Stone Bluff Cemetery


Beneath this hallowed ground rests the souls of many long-forgotten loved ones. Their gravestones destroyed by the hand of man: and the physical boundaries of the original burial grounds have been reclaimed. Only a very small list of those resting here has been found.

May they all rest in peace!

Additional comments.
1. Cemetery Markers were Bulldozed and Paved Over:
(Courtesy: Fountain County Genealogy Society - Volume 20, Issue 4 - Page 4) quote ::

"It was truly a sad day in 1927 when during the construction of what is now U.S. Highway 41, the decision was made to bulldoze the existing grave markers away and pave over the top of the cemetery rather than route the road around it. We cannot "un-ring" that bell however, we can only hope that someone may have some records showing that their loved ones were buried here and will share that information..."
