|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
This cemetery is now farmed over and no longer in the family. It is where John and Margaret "Peggy" built their home and The Stagecoach Inn when coming to this area. It is located 3 miles west of Lewisville, Henry, Indiana on what is now US 40 near the town of Dunreith. All four of the children that are buried here with John and Peggy died in 1835. I have not discovered the cause of death.
The cemetery is located in Franklin Township (N half of Section 29 Township 16N Range 11E). The map location is approximate.
Indiana Cemetery Locations, Volume 2, published by the Indiana Genealogical Society (01 April 2006), gives the primary cemetery name as Berger 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-33-30 (Berger Farm).
