Hint: The cemetery is not marked and is located on the right on a small hill between two homes. It is somewhat difficult to find. Most of the stones are fragmented and/or difficult to read.
Indiana Cemetery Locations, Volume 4, published by the Indiana Genealogical Society (April 2009), gives the primary cemetery name as Beem Cemetery with an alternate name of Brickyard Cemetery.
The cemetery is listed in the Cemetery and Burial Grounds Registry of the Indiana Department of Natural Resources (DNR) and in the State Historical Architectural and Archaeological Research Database (SHAARD) with Cemetery Record Number CR-36-1 (Beem).
