**Hint: Use ctrl + f in Firefox to find the name you are looking for** Goodwine Cemetery Liberty Township, Warren County, Indiana The Goodwine Cemetery is located in Liberty Township and contains many stones for early settlers. At times descendants have repaired and reset some of the stones preserving the monuments. The cemetery is next to the road and mowed so access is quite easy. To locate Goodwine, follow Highway 41 north 1 mile after the Highway 28 turnoff to Williamsport. Turn left onto a blacktop. The cemetery is 1 ½ miles and on the right side. A list made by Stanley Hathaway of Rossville, Illinois in 1935 was located and checked against our list. Note that a few maiden names were added by him and underlined.

Perry, Alice, w/o John and d/o Levi Leslie from Warren Republican (underlined) d.9/02/1895 From Warren Republican, Thurs., July 27, 1893 “Dead Union Soldiers” A recent visit to the Goodwine cemetery, in Liberty Township, disclosed the fact that there are seven deceased Union soldiers buried in this burial ground, as follows: William S. Pugh, who died October 12th, 1867, at the age of 28 years, 1 month and 27 days. No minute is made of company or regiment on the slab that marks his last resting place. William H. Crow died June 22nd, 1863, aged 22 years, 7 months and 25 days. He was a member of Company E, 86th Indiana Regiment. Robert Dino seems to be little known, nothing appearing on his tombstone, but his name. Squire Howard died February 21st, 1865, aged 19 years, 10 months and 25 days. He was a member of Company A, 142nd Regiment. Charles J. Burch was a Corporal of Company F, 72nd Regiment and died at Gallatin, Tenn., January 20th 1863, at the age of 26 years, 9 months an d17 days. Isaac Sellers was a member of Company D, 86th Regiment and died October 10th, 1868, aged 47 years. Kelley Leak was a member of Company g, 154th Regiment and died September 3rd, 1865, at the age of 16 years, 10 months and 27 days. Arriving at the cemetery we found a fine flock of sheep in full possession and had probably been there so long on pasture that they had either driven all the ghosts away or had become so familiar with them that they were not afraid. Pasturing the sheep on the graves of the dead saves time to those having friends buried in the cemetery, as the briars, thistles, high grass and weeds are nibbled down or trodden under foot and this saves the time it would take to cut and burn them. Why would it not be a good and economical plan for the friends of each neighborhood cemetery to own a flock of sheep for grazing purposes in the cemetery? The fence around the grounds are in good condition, but many of the slabs were lying upon the ground and some were broken; a few others were leaning up against the (continued on page 89b) fence taking a rest for the great Resurrection day, seeming to be out of any other employment.
