|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Blunk's Cemetery (also called Yeager-Blunk Cemetery) was started on a land grant given to Pvt. Andrew Blunk for his service in the Revolutionary War. Andrew Blunk (died 1821, believed first burial) was a private in the 4th Battalion 7th Company, 4th Class under Lieut. George Washington from 1781 to 1783. There are approximately 65-70 burials, but very few have marked stones. Amos Johnson (1810-1888) and John Lemmon (1804-1881) made a plat of all known burials about 1880. Amos was the son of another Revolutionary War soldier, Henson Johnson (1763-1858) and both are buried in Blunk's Cemetery. A third Revolutionary War soldier, John Mannan is also buried there. The last known burial was probably Amos Johnson. There are 6 rows laid out north to south with row 1, grave 1 starting in the southeast corner by the gate. The cemetery is on private land and maintained by the owner.
Indiana Cemetery Locations, Volume 4, published by the Indiana Genealogical Society (April 2009), gives the primary cemetery name as Blunk 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-31-319 (Blunk’s Family).
