Bethel cemetery is being destroyed.

This is an old cemetery started in 1838. In Indiana, we don't have many historical sites that we can boast of that date that far back. Companies come and go, but once you destroyed history it is gone forever. I believe that it being destroyed to make room for Fed Ex. Does anyone have any more information about this destruction? I see a meeting is set for the time and place below.
