Search Dyar Cemetery:

The Dyer cemetery, as the map shows, is located near SR 42 and Candlestick Corner Rd; it is in Section 28, Township 12N, Range 5W, in Cass Township, Clay County.

It is in the middle of a crop field and there is no access other than on foot. It is completely overgrown with weeds and brush.

Could find no official records for the cemetery; the Clay County Genealogical Society in Center Point does have some reconstructed records but they seem to be recollections of long-time residents, and are almost certainly incomplete.

Indiana Cemetery Locations, Volume 4, published by the Indiana Genealogical Society (April 2009), gives the primary cemetery name as Webster Cemetery.
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-11-9 (Dyar / Nier / Schoppel).
The Indiana Historic Sites and Structures Inventory (IHSSI) survey number for Nier Cemetery / Dyar Cemetery / Schoppel Cemetery is 021-519-25013 with the dataset compiled in 1994.
The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Geographic Names Information System (GNIS) feature ID for the cemetery is 440172 (Nier Cemetery).
