**Hint: Use ctrl + f in Firefox to find the name you are looking for** The Tomlinson Cemetery Warren County, Indiana The Tomlinson Cemetery was established at a later date and is very well-kept and mowed. The 1966 History of Warren County gives this information on page 115: Jesse and Mary (McFarland) Tomlinson had a large family and Mary’s sister Jane also lived with them. Since the cemeteries at West Lebanon and Baltimore seemed too distant, and since Mrs. Tomlinson did not care for the location of the Sisson Cemetery, they decided to make one of their own. There is a tradition that the first grave was that of a little child who died in the spring while Opossum Run was at flood stage. It being impossible to cross to Sisson, the burial was made at the new site. Jesse Tomlinson deeded this acre to himself as a “sacred burial ground” for him and his family. Most of the family were buried here and the cemetery remains today. The land for this family cemetery was set aside in the second codicil of Jesse Tomlinson’s last will and testament, dated January 7, 1853. The cemetery is located on Section 30, Steuben Township, Warren County, Indiana—now the George Edens Estate Farm, one and three-quarters miles southwest of Marshfield.
