A History of Crawford County Indiana, Hazen Hayes Pleasant, Published Greenfield, Indiana, 1926.
In 1814 the following men bought farms in Crawford County: James Totten, Henry Fullenwider, William McKay, Andrew and Joseph Kinkaid, Moses Smith and Robert Fields.
Of the above named men probably Henry Fullenwider was the most noted. He was a leading citizen at Alton for many years. He built a mill near his home to which the farmers took their grist. When the citizens divided up township four south, range one east, into school districts about 1837 Henry Fullenwider was elected district trustee for District No. 4. One finds in those days that each man had his private cemetery. So on the hill west of Alton about two miles, "Uncle Henry," as his good neighbors called him, selected the site for the cemetery. The following article appeared in the Crawford Democrat a few months ago.
"A handsome and appropriate monument, a gift of their five living sons, Doctor Jack Fullenwider of Mount Vernon, Professor Percy Fullenwider of the Wisconsin Conservatory of Music, John, William and Marshall of Roberta, Kentucky, was erected over Haden Fullenwider's grave, a descendant of Colonel Henry and Delilah, his wife at Fullenwider's cemetery, Tuesday, October 18th. This ceremony recalls the open hospitality of this honored couple for many years of their happy life spent at the old Colonel Henry home which was the social center of the community during the years in which they raised their family of six boys and four girls.
The cemetery also contains the grave of Jonathan Boone, a nephew of Daniel Boone. Jonathan was born in the Forks of the Yadkin River, N. C. August 30, 1766 and died in 1827. The colonel's part is separated from the rest by a stone wall. His descendants live near Alton to-day, one of whom married Doctor H. H. Deen, who has a large practice at Leavenworth."
