time, Mt. Zion Cemetery is in deplorable condition. There is a great
deal of overgrowth and there are many young trees that were never
intended to be a part of the landscape. The overgrowth can be cleared,
but the trees will remain. When the place gets cleaned up it will
be a nice, quiet, shady place to pay respects to our ancestors and to
the Revolutionary War veteran buried there, Israel Jennings.
This page wil be dedicated to the restoration
of the cemetery and a place to share historical information about Mt.
Zion and the people buried there.
There are 28 known burials at Mt. Zion. The following list was provided
by Lana Taylor and Dan Todd. Lana obtained the information from a
Cemetery book (title unknown, but possiblyStalker School Little
Hoosiers) during a visit to Bloomington but that list did not have the
Blackwell's. Dan provided the Blackwell information he found on a trip
to the cemetery. The
cemetery is located on
what used to be known as the Armstrong Farm.
