Political Graveyard for Dearborn County


There is a Cundale family burial ground and it is located on Possum Ridge Road off State Road # 48 west of Wrights Corner in Manchester Twp, Dearborn County, IN.

This is verified by when, John Cundale and wife sold land to Daniel and Abigail (wife) ROBERTS, 14 Nov 1825, Dearborn County Deed Records Book "A" pages 515 and 516. Daniel and his wife later sold this same land to Sarah Ann Thompson, 9 Apr 1866. In the deed, it stipulated "Except two (2) rods square of ground in the above decribed tract convering the site of the Family Burying Ground, situate on the Ridge East of the Brick Dwelling House, which two (2) rods square of gound the grantor herein reserves to himself and his heirs forever, for burial purposes, together with the right of ingness thereto and egness therefrom and to inclose the said burying ground with a stone wall or other fence and keep this same in repair" The tract was located in the south half of the East half of the North East quarter of Section Ten (10) Township five (5) of Range Two (2).

Thank you Earl Thompson!
