Cemetery notes and/or description:
The cemetery is located in Guthrie Township (E half of the NW quadrant of the NE quadrant of Section 27 Township 5N Range 2E) on 2nd Street at its intersection with Williams Street. The cemetery is currently maintained and operated by the Leesville Cemetery Association as a single cemetery. Earlier, portions of the cemetery had been identified as separate cemeteries: the Greenlawn Cemetery or Greenlawn Addition, the Shields Cemetery or Shields Addition, the Hill Addition, the Smith Addition, and the Allen Cemetery or the Elijah Allen Cemetery. The cemetery is located on the opposite side of 2nd Street from the Leesville United Methodist Church, causing some to refer to the cemetery as the Leesville United Methodist Church Cemetery.

Indiana Cemetery Locations, Volume 3, published by the Indiana Genealogical Society (April 2007), gives the primary cemetery name as Greenlawn Cemetery with an alternate name of Leesville Cemetery #1, as Shields Cemetery with an alternate name of Leesville Cemetery #2, and as Allen Cemetery with an alternate name of Elijah Allen 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-47-21 (Greenlawn / Leesville), Cemetery Record Number CR-47-30 (Shields) and with Cemetery Record Number CR-47-16 (Elijah Allen).
