|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Greenbrier or old Cold Friday Cemetery is located in south Scott Township (now known as west Harrison Township), Harrison County, Indiana, which is in the northwest quarter of Section 24, township 4 South, Range 2 East. Occasionally, Greenbrier has been referred to as New Bethel. This cemetery was established about 1860 with the first burials in 1860.
According to Reverend Adam B. Condo's book, History of the Indiana Conference of the Church of the United Brethren in Christ published in 1926, "… a log church of worship for that denomination stood here as early as 1866. That accounts for this large cemetery located here. In 1891 a frame church was built under the hill and this same congregation moved to the new building and called their church New Bethel or commonly called Cold Friday, which name was also given to School No. 4 which stood in or near this church." [Note: The school is across the road from where the church once stood and adjoins Cold Friday-New Bethel Cemetery.]
Please note, that Greenbrier Cemetery was commonly called Cold Friday burying ground or cemetery and that what is now called Cold Friday Cemetery, which is located down the hill from Greenbrier was actually called New Bethel Cemetery. Since both cemeteries are located in Cold Friday, each has been called Cold Friday.
There are some burials without the typical gravestones. Those markers are sandstone and other types of rocks.
