Shiffler Cemetery

Although it is actually located in what was Pulaski, it is on the fringes of Bryan, and has a Bryan address.

Take US 127 north from Bryan. Go through Pulaski, and just past County Road H. The cemetery is located on the left. Shiffler Cemetery is located in Jefferson Twp, and began as a burial ground in 1849. The story goes as follows, on the evening of 11 Apr 1849, J and M Moss of Pennsylvania, who were migrating west, halted their team and covered wagon at the Benjamin Shiffler home. They requested shelter for themselves and their month-old baby son, Alpheus. The child died that night, and Mr. Shiffler offered a sandy knoll across the road, which he owned, for the burial. That was the first in what became the Shiffler Cemetery.
