Listed below are the transcriptions and photos of the tombstones in the Masonic Cemetery, Monroe Township, Allen County, Indiana. This cemetery was photographed in September of 2010. The cemetery is located on the north side and at the end of McDonald Street, off State Road 101. This cemetery is no longer in use.

Indiana DNR Location Listing:
Quarter Sections 1/4, 1/4SE, 1/4NW, 1/4SW
Section 17, Twp 29N, Range 15E
Latitude 40.9700 Longitude 84.8598
Easting 680083 Northing 4537627

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 and in the 1980ís the Allen County Genealogical Society (ACGSI) did a reading. The information from these readings 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.
