Inscription. Near here settled pioneer Quakers, including the Aaron Stanton Family. In 1836 William Bond agreed to convey the Society of Friends three acres of land for a meeting house lot and burial ground. Bond died in 1837 and in 1841 the La Porte Circuit Court so ordered. Some 400 persons are said to have been buried, many with only a field stone marker.
