**Hint: Use ctrl + f in Firefox to find the name you are looking for** Washington Township, Warren County, Indiana This cemetery is located just west of Williamsport on Highway 28, two miles from the four-way stop at the courthouse. It is on the left side of the road. The cemetery is well-cared for, although a few stones are located in overgrown bushes. There are empty areas indicating that stones may have been broken and lost over a period of time. The stones were read on a bright day and the light seemed to be just right for accurate reading. This list begins at the east end. It was compared with a list made by Clara Crawford Smith in 1843. Stones missing by 1984 are listed and her comments are included.
