Salem Evangelical Lutheran Cemetery


Listed below is the transcription of the tombstones in the Salem Cemetery, Springfield Township, Allen County, Indiana. The cemetery is located on the southeast corner of Spencerville and Springfield Center Roads. It is also known as Springfield Center Cemetery. This cemetery is no longer in use. The cemetery has been mowed in some areas. Several groupings of stones have only been mowed around and brush, tall grass and poison ivy have over taken them. Several large monuments have fallen. The cemetery was photographed and transcribed in July of 2009. 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.


Indiana DNR Location Listings:
Quarter Section 1/4, 1/4NW, 1/4NW, 1/4NE
Section 21, Twp 32N, Range 14E
Latitude 41.2247 Longitude 84.9131
Easting 674932 Northing 4565802

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 (ACGSI) did a reading in the 1980’s. 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.
