Messick Cemetery
Also known as: Cannaday Cemetery, Liberty Baptist Cemetery
Messick
Henry County
Indiana  USA

Cemetery notes and/or description:
This old cemetery is one of the oldest in Henry County. On May 1, 1828 William Cannaday donated 1/2 acre of land to The Liberty Congregation Church trustees; Eli Frazier, George Hedrick and Calvin Russell for use as the burial ground for the Liberty Church. At one time it was maintained by the township trustees and was kept mowed and maintained by them. Over the last couple of decades it has been completely forgotten and allowed to become overgrown and abandoned. Several attempts by various individuals have cleaned this cemetery every year without any help from the township trustee.

There are 5 veterans from the War of 1812 buried here.
