Van Sickle Cemetery
Warren Township, WR022
Data entry by Cheryl Dixon from a list in the State Library.
This cemetery is on 12 acres of land that is remaining from a much larger original farm. The property is still owned by the family; Ramon Van Sickle of Zionsville is the current property owner although he is considering selling the property and contemplating relocating the cemetery. This list is complied from one found in the Indiana State Library. According to that list, it is only a partial listing. From talking with Mr. Van Sickle, it seems the cemetery was not only a family one, but a community and church cemetery. It was located less than a mile from Old Bethel Methodist Church at 21stStreet and Franklin Road; at least one of the founders of the church is buried here.
