Hadley Cemetery

Listed below is the transcription of the tombstones in the Hadley Cemetery, Lake Township, Allen County, Indiana. The cemetery is located on south side of Yellow River Road, about .5 mile from the junction of Bass and Yellow River Roads. This cemetery is no longer in use. The cemetery is mowed and trimmed but otherwise is in very bad shape. Most of the stones are knocked over and broken. The fence is broken and some parts missing. The cemetery was photographed and transcribed in November of 2008. All stones in place at that time were included. If there is a photo of the tombstone, there will be a link after the name.

The listings are in alphabetical order. One surname is listed per stone. If a stone contained multiple people, the names on the stone are listed in order, from left to right. Information that pertains to a single individual is listed after their name. If the information pertains to multiple names, such as a marriage date, it is listed after all the names.

In some instances the stones were very worn and hard to read. In 1932 the DAR did a reading of the cemetery. The information from the 1932 reading was used if the stones were unreadable or if the stones were not found.

At this time, requests to photograph specific tombstones are not being taken. There is no other information on any person other than what is listed. The photographs are copyrighted by the Mary Penrose Wayne Chapter, NSDAR and may not be copied or published in any way for profit. Copies of the photos may be printed for your personal use only. Please give the Mary Penrose Wayne Chapter, NSDAR credit when documenting where the transcriptions and photos were found.

Stone broken. Only a small mid-section of the stone exists that has a saying on it. Under the
