With Cierco library's permission, they had a thick book, Hamilton Obituaries, 1883-1949 not organized, I was able to add more names to this graveyard without actually see graves. But most obituaries have "lot of section" of where graves should be at.

Adam B. Wiles
Death of the oldest Citizen
Adam B. Wiles was born in Mercer County Pa, May 12, 1808 and passed away April 6, 1900. When two years old, his parents moved to Brown County, Ohio August 30, 1827, he married to Ellendar Blanchard. In 1830 he moved to Rush County, Indiana and in 1834 to Hamilton County, where he has ever since resided. Of his union with Miss Blanchard, 17 children were born, of whom 12 are living. 75 grandchildren 120 great grandchildren and 10 great great grandchildren.
When Mr. Wiles settled in Hamilton county It had no neighbor courthouse or jail. He located a framer in the woods, chopping down with his own hands the trees of his rude log cabin was built. This cabin had neither floor, door, nor chink," and between it and Noblesville, 10 miles, there was but three houses. He lived to see himself surrounded by splendid farms, thriving towns, and a highly intelligent and propseorus people who have but slight ideas of hardships and pioneer years through which he passed. He became a member of the Christan church in 1853, and during the remainder of his long life, he continued a consistent Christian his correct life, in surfing him the respect of all who knew him. His end was peace, and his memory will long be cherished.
