**Remains and stones moved to Brownsburg Cemetery in 1984.

Original Cemetery Location:
SW ¼ of Sec 2, T16N R1E, About 350 feet west of SR 267, south of 74, on a bluff of the White Lick Creek, about where the Walmart is now. 

New Location:
In Brownsburg Cemetery, in the back (farthest west) row.  This farthest west row is next to the first row of St. Malachy Cemetery.  Jonathan’s Revolutionary War stone is in the back row and Hannah’s is in front (east) of his. 

Jonathan Ward: N39°51.091’ W86°23.657’ or N395105 W862339
Hannah Ward: N39°51.091’ W86°23.652’ or N395105 W862339
Approximate Center: N39°51.091’ W86°23.655’ N395105 W862339

Jonathan’s Revolutionary War stone was embedded in concrete, which is completely unnecessary and damaging to the stone.  Hannah’s stone is modern granite. Brownsburg is a mowed, well-maintained cemetery.
