CHARLESTOWN CEMETERY - Charlestown, Clark Co., IN
Charlestown Cemetery
Located on Pleasant Street in the City of Charlestown, the cemetery remains well-maintained and is the final resting place of many of the early pioneers, including Daily descendants and the first governor of Indiana, Jonathan Jennings.

In 1882 it was noted as: "Situated in the western part of the village, on a hill which slopes toward Pleasant run, the old burying-ground of Charlestown was laid out in 1818. The present cemetery originally had one hundred and twelve lots and was subdivided for strangers, suicides, and colored people." - Source: History of the Ohio Falls Cities and their Counties, 1882.

Thanks to David James, Mike Hensley & Laura Boyer Talbot for contributing the following photos ...
