Davis Cemetery
Warren Township, WR055
Complied by D. Lowery and Olga Woodman in Oct. 1989. (members of the Franklin Township Historical Society)
Data Entry by Cheryl Dixon from an October 1989 list in the State Library
     This cemetery is located at 2661 Senour Road on property owned by C. H. Willman. His three children attended Warren Central.
     Many stones are turned upside down, turned around, embedded in soil, or are too weathered to read. Possibly none are in original place according to property owner. Numbers are hard or impossible to read. Number 8 could be 3; number 3 could be 8. The same applies to letters.
 [All notes are from the original list]
The small stones with initials only appear to be footstones.
One stone was removed to Crown Hill, but it is not known which one.
The Indiana State Library, Genealogy Department, was unable to produce a record of this cemetery other than a reference in a card file and a mark on a 1939 WPA map.
