NOLT CEMETERY
South of Columbia City
Whitley County, Indiana

In October, 2006, Jaleen Bultman-Deardurff visited the gravesites of her CREAGER ancestors and relatives in these cemeteries in Whitley County, Indiana: the Old Cleveland Family Cemetery, the South Whitley Cemetery, and the Nolt Cemetery. Here are a few of her comments. ASH

"The very old cemetery, simply called the Old Cleveland Cemetery, is out in the middle of nowhere. Peter Creager I and his second wife, Elizabeth, are buried there with other Creager's. Peter's stone was missing and the others were difficult to read, but one clearly said Creager on it. The other headstones at the South Whitley Cemetery and Nolt Cemetery are easy to read. I was deeply moved as I stood at these graves. I realized I was walking around on the very ground my ancestors stood."
