Manche Cemetery is in Section 21, located in a field south of CR 300 South, between 300 and 400 West. It is inaccessible and can not be seen from the road.

Family tradition says there was a Meningitis Epidemic in the neighborhood about the time of the Civil War, and the victims were buried in the Manche Cemetery.

No one knows for sure how many burials there were, but in 1992 there were only 2 legible headstones and 3 footstones that could be found.

The 3 footstones had the initials:
G.B.L. -- J.M. -- and -- E.G.M.

(Transcribed by Jeff Lantz, October 1992)

The cemetery is located in Sugar Creek Township (Section 21 Township 15N Range 6E).

The cemetery is listed in the Cemetery and Burial Grounds Registry of the Indiana Department of Natural Resources (DNR) and in the State Historical Architectural and Archaeological Research Database (SHAARD) with Cemetery Record Number CR-30-74 (Manche).
Indiana Cemetery Locations, Volume 2, published by the Indiana Genealogical Society (01 April 2006), gives the primary cemetery name as Manche Cemetery.
