|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
This cemetery is rarely ever used.
Obituaries tend to refer to this as Dunkard Cemetery. Those that refer to Mount Calvary Cemetery in obituaries today are Mount Calvary Cemetery at Mount Hope.
"This is a nicely located cemetery on a hillside south of the Dunkard church at Hooverville and overlooks the Eel river to the west.
On March 18, 1887, David Keeport deeded to the trustees of the German Baptist church at Hooverville, Indiana, to-wit: David Flory, Abram Hyres and David Keeport, several acres of land in the northwest quarter section 24, Miami township. Prior to this, on January 26, 1885, David Keeport platted six and one-half acres, being the above described tract for a cemetery. There are not a great many graves on these grounds. Members of the Stevens, Flory, Charles, Keeport, Kinzies and Cart families are buried here."
