Fulton Graveyard

Cemetery notes and/or description:
The condition of this old graveyard: tree-grown, brush and weed-covered. The
entire eastern end was covered with a thick growth of young trees, about 12 to
15 feet in height. This is the section which tradition says was used by the
Indians to bury their dead. There were no descernible markers nor mounds which
would identify graves. Many stones were fallen and had to be uncovered before
being read. There may have been others that were buried too deeply to show.
But it is certain there were other unidentifiable graves, including those of
the seven sons of Dr. John B. Middleton who, according to relatives of the
family, also were buried there.

The exact location of the old Fulton Graveyard, according

to land description is NW 1/4NE 1/4 Sect. 2, TIN R.3E,
Haines Township. It is situated on a knoll or promontory.
