The following is from "The Making of a Township, Being an Account of the Early Settlement and Subsequent Development of Fairmount Township,Grant County, Indiana 1829-1917" by Edgar M. Baldwin. Edgar Baldwin Publishing County, Fairmount Township, Indiana. 1917. 503 pp.

Pg. 44

In the fall of 1826, about the month of September, Robert McCormick came from Fayette County, Indiana. On August 15, 1829, he entered land and built his cabin soon after near the crossing of the Ft. Wayne, Muncie and Indianapolis State road, on the farm later owned by J. and M. E. Wilson, situated one-half mile south of Wilson's ford. McCormick moved his family to their new home in October, 1829. His cabin became known far and near as McCormick's Tavern. As the State road in those days was the principal highway through this section of Indiana, the tavern enjoyed a good trade.

Near the site of this old tavern is Bethel Graveyard, the quite spot where lie buried the early settlers of this neighborhood, including Daniel and Mary Coleman, the donors of the land, and Isaac Sudduth, who served in the War of the Revolution, and died at the Coleman home at the age of ninety-nine years. Mrs. Rachel Coleman Haynes, who lives at the Coleman homestead, takes great pleasure in bringing to mind the scenes about the old tavern house in the days when the girls wore poke bonnets and shawls and skirts of great fullness. Her father Daniel Coleman, a son of Thomas Coleman, served for sixteen years as Justice of the Peace in pioneer days. Mrs. Haynes was married August 26, 1868, to Francis Marion Haynes.

Isaac Sudduth, buried in East Bethel Graveyard. There was a Methodist Episcopal Church at Bethel, many years ago. In the Bethel graveyard lie the remains of John (Isaac) Sudduth, a soldier of the Revolutionary War.

Page 433

In a little corner of Fairmount Township which juts out toward the river beyond the Muncie Pike, a pioneer burying ground lies at the edge of a deep ravine. This is old Bethel graveyard--not more than a mile from the Fankboner burial place--one of the oldest in the Township.

Unlike the latter graveyard it is readily accessible and is easily seen from the road. It is also less neglected, being enclosed with a fence, and interments are still occasionally made there. The headstones are tall and flat and old-fashioned and some times the carving on them is odd and queer. "Isaac Sudduth, old Revolutioner, died November 27, 1854, aged ninety-nine years," is the inscription we noticed on one headstone. We had heard, an hour or two previously, from the lips of Mr. Sudduth's great-granddaughter, Mrs. F. M. Haynes, a bit of his ??? story and so we know that the words, "Old Revolutioner," meant that he had served in the Revolutionary War.

Mrs. Haynes could, as a little girl, remember her great-grandfather, who lacked only a few months of living to be one hundred years old. "He would sit by the fire," she said, "and when grandmother would ask him how he felt he would say, "I'm all right, only I'm just waiting." One morning he sat down to his breakfast as usual. He had his knife in one hand and his fork in the other. Suddenly the knife and fork dropped to the floor, his head fell forward and the "Old Revolutioner's" time of waiting was over.

Mr. and Mrs. Haynes told us many things as we sat in their low-ceiled, walnut-finished sitting room while the quiet Sabbath afternoon hours slipped swiftly away. And Mr. Haynes played some tunes on his fiddle--he doesn't call it a violin. He plays by note and he likes to use an old-time hymn book in which the notes are the old-fashioned kind.

Many people know where the old Daniel Coleman homestead stands, back a short distance from the Muncie pike. This is where Mrs. Haynes was born and, with the exception of about two years, it has always been her home. It is there that she will probably end her days.

Over in Bethel graveyard, which was originally a part of the farm of her father, Daniel Coleman, who deeded the ground to the community for a burial place, lies her great-grandfather, Isaac Sudduth, both her grandfathers, Thomas Coleman and Gabriel Johnson, and many others of her kindred.
