Archer Cemetery


Listed below is the transcription of the tombstones in the Archer Cemetery, Washington Township, Allen County, Indiana. The cemetery is located on the east side of Parnell Avenue, just south of the Allen county Memorial Coliseum. This cemetery is mowed and cared for but only three stones remain. This cemetery is no longer in use. The cemetery was photographed and transcribed in April 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.

Quarter Sections 1/4, 1/4SE, 1/4SW, 1/4NE
Section 25, Twp 31N, Range 12E
Latitude 41.1117 Longitude 85.1233
Easting 657579 Northing 4552868 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 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.
