Walnut Ridge Lutheran Cemetery

Formerly located on the southeast corner where Springfield Center Road crossed State Road 37, Maysville Road, a triangle section of land. DAR page says no stones remain. IN DNR Latitude 41.2258 Longitude 84.8792.

From a contact in 2014, verbal history says when they put the new roads in they bulldozed the stones over, covered them with dirt and built the roads over the graves. If you can confirm or refute this history, know dates of what happened, or where the tombstones are, please let us know.
