**Hint: Use ctrl + f in Firefox to find the name you are looking for** Upper Mound contains some very old sandstone markers, many of which are roughly carved with no lettering left. One of these is the stone of Isac Balla, who died in August 1834. The “S” in august is backwards and the “4” is hard to read, but it is an example of one of the earliest legible stones. This list was compiled from the list made by the Illiana Geneological Society in October 1970 and June 1971, and it is easy to check a cemetery when a previous list is available. The second reading can pick up oversights and make a more accurate list. Fourteen additional names were found, some on the backs of others. Two stone read in 1970 were not found at this reading. The newer section was not re-checked. Upper Mound Cemetery Warren County, Indiana Section A is at the west end of the cemetery. This is the oldest part of the cemetery. The rows are copied from north to south, starting at the west edge of the section. Section B is in the middle, between two roads. Section C is at the east side of the cemetery.
