|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
AKA Bowers or Gray Cemetery
Located on a hilltop in Monroe Twp. on the Bowers farm, the cemetery is on the west side of CR 200W between 1025N and 1100N.
Over the years, dense undergrowth and even small trees had encroached upon, and had completely hidden the burial ground from view. Many local people had no idea a cemetery existed in their midst.
In the summer of 1997, the Madison Co. Cemetery Commission undertook the reconstruction of the cemetery.
The earliest grave is 1811 and the latest is 1915. The cemetery has the name of the first owner of the land, J.C. Weddington, who created the original family plot.
There are three veterans from the War of 1812 buried here also.
