Bowers Cemetery


Listed below is the transcription of the tombstones in the Bowers Cemetery, Saint Joseph Township, Allen County, Indiana. The cemetery is located at 9101 Stellhorn Road, on the northeast corner of Stellhorn and Wheelock Roads. This cemetery is in use. The cemetery is mowed and well cared for. The cemetery was photographed and transcribed in the fall of 2008. However some of the older stones are broken. 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.
Information in [ ] provided by family members.


Indiana DNR Location Listing:
Quarter Sections 1/4, 1/4NW, 1/4NW, 1/4NW
Section 25, Twp 31N, Range 13E
Latitude 41.1214 Longitude 85.0219
Easting 6666052 Northing 4554130

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. The DAR did a reading in 1932 and the Allen County Genealogical Society did a reading in the 1980ís. The information from these readings was used if the stones were unreadable or if the stones were not found.

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.
