Shiloh Cemetery in Indiana
Sherri, I added a few names and dates to the Shiloh Cemetery. I have personally read this cemetery, and I also have two separate readings of the cemetery from the early 1900's. Also, there is a newspaper article from the September 1, 1941 Palladium-Item Newspaper in Richmond, Indiana that tells of the deliberate destruction of this cemetery by the landowner (then), with the use of a sledgehammer. I found 30 broken stones, 23 of which were still in the ground - with the tops gone. I found 15 semi-readable stones. I did see a few imprints of a sledgehammer on a few of the stones.
This is a very pretty spot for a cemetery, and I can see why they chose it.
I hope that this information helps.

Hi Sherri,
That would be great if you would add the photos. We were hoping to get back there this year but it isn't going to happen.
