Old Harlan Cemetery

Listed below is the transcription of the tombstones in the Old Harlan Cemetery, Springfield Township, Allen County, Indiana. The cemetery is located on the south side of State Road 37, on the east end of Harlan, across for Repp Road. This cemetery is no longer in use. The cemetery is now well cared since being adopted by Harlan Elementary School. The cemetery was photographed and transcribed in September 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, 1/4SW, 1/4SE
Section 28, Twp 32N, Range 14E
Latitude 41.1968 Longitude 84.9128
Easting 675028 Northing 4562906

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 1980s. 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.
