Note some stones were relocated to Rose Hill Cemetery in Newburgh, Warrick Co., IN in 1995. There is a monument in Rose Hill Cemetery dedicated to those known burials in the old Epworth Cemetery. My great-grandmother Nancy Ann Crow Voyles was buried there without a marker. Place of burial is documented by her death certificate. The materials I obtained to produce this page contained copies of several "lists of those interred in Epworth Cemetery" I strongly feel none of those lists is complete. If you have death certificates, or other data, indicating your family member was interred at Epworth Cemetery please contact me at the email address below so we can update the data on known burials at Epworth Cemetery.
