April 1, 2023 post by Meteorologist Liz Braden on Facebook:

DAMAGE: A large part of the roof at Central Ministries has been blown off, pieces of the debris are scattered around the building.

Old trees are uprooted all around Bower’s Cemetery.

The cemetery was mentioned in a later Facebook discussion April 1, 2023 and may have been near the beginning of an EF-2, one of two tornadoes along IN-37 from Fort Wayne towards Harlan, Indiana.

The National Weather Service officially confirms two tornadoes in northeast Allen County Friday night. An EF-2 developed in northeast Fort Wayne and moved into Harlan with estimated peak winds of 120 mph. This first tornado stayed on the ground for 7.8 miles and was expected to have a maximum width of 400 yards. from FIRST ALERT: Two tornadoes confirmed in Friday night’s storms on 21AliveNews.com.

Work continued Tuesday on cleaning up a cemetery that has been the final resting place for more than 3,000 people since the early 1800s after it was decimated by weekend storms in northeast Allen County. Tombstones and centuries-old trees litter Bowers Cemetery after two tornadoes tore through the area. The National Weather Service determined them to be an EF2, with 111 mph to 135 mph winds, and an EF0, with 65 mph to 85 mph winds. The extensive damage to the cemetery, at Wheelock and Stellhorn roads, surprised Ed Snyder, president of the Bowers Cemetery Board. Snyder said he didn’t even know the area had suffered bad weather until he woke up Saturday. “The devastation is so big, there’s no way we have the money for that,” Snyder said, adding that the cemetery’s 4-year-old board doesn’t have much more than $2,000 in its bank account to pay for regular maintenance.

Although some of the photos show damaged grave markers at Bowers #Cemetery, please know that the striking thing is how few stones were damaged given the destruction of trees by the #tornado.

The volunteers have done tremendous work in cutting trees and removing debris. Our thanks to each and every person assisting.

The stone marking the site of my Great Uncle Perry Spencer's parents and sister was spared.

One large memorial stone dated from July 1901 to May 1967. Early research shows that the cemetery has more than 200 graves, Pelfrey says. “There could be many more.” Quote by Todd Maxwell Pelfrey, executive director of the History Center was copied from Days of a forgotten school Stories sought about memories of state center by Terri Richardson published March 08, 2020 in The Journal Gazette newspaper .

Jerry Henry, son of social worker Jerome Henry, who lived in an old farm house on the school property in the 1950s-60s recalls growing up near the school and the cemetery that existed at that time. Research shows more than 200 graves existed, possibly more. The History Center was hoping to team with PFW archaeology students in the summer of 2020 before the COVID-19 Pandemic started to identify the boundaries of the cemetery. The AWS Foundation and the History Center as part of a project to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the American with Disabilities Act are researching and documenting the history of the school and center to show how far society has progressed when it comes to people with disabilities. They are hoping to collect stories to used in a documentary by WFWA-TV PBS Fort Wayne. In addition, the History Center will have a temporary exhibit the fall of 2020 that focuses on the center, how the region has understood the people at the school and artifacts from the school.

Klinger Riverbend Cemetery

7207 Saint Joe Road near the Saint Joseph River near the 13th hole of the Riverbend Golf Course

Google map has photo in Street View

The First Death.— In 1830, William Matthews died and was buried in the cemetery near the Maumee settlement. There was then no cemetery in St. Joseph Township, and for four years thereafter the remains of deceased residents ol this township were taken to some of the neighboring burying grounds.

In 1834, Jesse Klinger donated a small tract of land on the St. Joseph River, to be used as a township' cemetery. It fell into disuse in later years, but its graves have never been disturbed. Peter Parker donated two acres of ground in 1846. The latter is now used as a burial place for the township. It is tastefully laid out and well cared for.

From page 173 of the History of Allen County, Indiana. Publication date 1880 Publisher Kingman Brothers on Archive.org.

Jesse Klinger, a native of Pennsylvania, who settled on the Richardville reserve in 1829, and became a great favorite, and conspicuous for those kindly acts of neighborly kindness peculiar to the early days, was fairly embarked in making his farm, when he died in 1835, and was one of the first of those to be buried in the cemetery he had donated. His son, Samuel, born in 1830, was the first white native of the township.

Copied from page 211 of the book Valley of the upper Maumee River, with historical account of Allen County and the city of Fort Wayne, Indiana Volume 1, Publication date 1889 on Archive.org.

Page 612

In 1834, Mr. Klinger had given a small tract of laud on the St. Joseph river, to be used as a cemetery, burials having been made as far away as the Maumee settlement previous to that date. A year later, when his efforts toward competency were nearing deserved success, his health broke, and he himself was one of the first to be buried in the little "Acre." His wife returned to her Ohio home, with- her five-year-old son, Samuel, the first white child born in St. Joseph, only to lose him, also, a few years later.

Page 614

The first St. Joseph pioneer to die was William Matthews, in 1830, before the establishment of a local burial place, he being laid in the Maumee settlement plot. The first cemetery, donated as has been said, by Jesse Klinger, 1834, was in use for twelve years, and was never disturbed; but a larger plot was given by Peter Parker in 1846 which then became the township cemetery.

Copied from the book The pictorial history of Fort Wayne, Indiana : a review of two centuries of occupation of the region about the head of the Maumee River Volume 1 by Griswold, B. J. (Bert Joseph), 1873-1927; Taylor, Samuel R., Mrs, Publication date: 1917 on Archive.org.

Earliest burial about 1834. No longer in use. According to old Plat Records in the Allen County Court House, there was a treaty between the United States and the Indians called The Treaty of the Wabash in 1826, giving certain lands to the Indians. The present-day golf course is on the before-mentioned land. Only 3 tombstones remain buried in the ground, one in German language. None for Mr. Klinger.

At least seven tombstones are visible in this Kuckuck Cemetery, Trier Road, Allen County, IN in 1935 photo in the Allen County Public Library Digital Collections at the Allen County Public Library. There are other non-cemetery Kuckuck search results.
This photo was posted and discussed March 24, 2024 on True Fort Wayne Indiana History on Facebook .

The Mary Penrose Wayne Chapter NSDAR Allen County Indiana Cemetery Project Kukuck-Bullerman Cemetery webpage states: This cemetery no longer exists. The cemetery was located between Reed Road and Maplecrest, off Trier and Stellhorn Roads. The cemetery was on the Bullerman farm. Cemetery was transferred to Saint Peter Lutheran. Listed below are transcriptions from 1932 DAR listings and 1980's ACGSI listings. Since the cemetery was moved there are no stones and therefore no photos.

The Mrs. Dorothea Kuckuck obituary shown below shows she was buried at the Kuckuck Homestead Cemetery, but her tombstone is now found in the Old Concordia Cemetery.

Contact Allen INGenWeb if you know more about the cemetery, where St. Stephens comes from, or when the cemetery was moved.

The NSDAR Kukuck-Bullerman Cemetery webpage shows only 2 burials were known:

1974 USGS map showing Kukuck Cemetery location

1963 US Department of the Interior Geological Survey Fort Wayne East Quadrangle map, photorevised 1972, stamped Mar 07, 1974, in the middle of the Eastern half of the Northwest Quarter of Section 28, is the Kukuck Cemetery near a green wooded area south of Stellhorn Road, east of Reed Road, north of St. Charles Borromeo School and Catholic Church on Trier Road, west of Meyers Road now called Maplecrest Road.

Until around 1970, there was a wooded lot of about one acre in what is now Park Forest subdivsion just west of the former Park Forest Swim Club. The cemetery was in the southern part of the trees. There were around a dozen stones including a rather prominent obelisk.

According to topographical maps on the Historic Aerials website, the cemetery was located on what’s now the lot for the house at 5411 Hewitt Lane, which, according to Zillow, was built in 1970. The 1974 topo still shows the cemetery, but that’s clearly an error, as the 1973 aerial imagery shows the house. So the cemetery was likely moved in 1969 or early 1970.

Information from a February 21, 2024 multiple email discussion with Douglas Lambert.

Aerial View from Google Maps shows this area as Bullerman Park Forest.

November 14, 2023 comment to a discussion of a photo of a Manth stone in Maplewood Park during street and sewer reconstruction posted on True Fort Wayne Indiana History on Facebook.

It mentions old-timers recalling several small family cemeteries in the area prior to development of the family farms into subdivisions in the 1960s. A possible cemetery was on Goeglein Road between Stellhorn and Trier, was an empty lot for years never built on with no remaining tombstones (at least above-ground) with the usual cemetery plants of the previous century (like yuccas and day lilies). ... the intersection of Stellhorn and Maplecrest used to be called Maplewood Corners when Maplecrest was a dirt road many moons ago! I still remember the green highway sign!

Parker Cemetery

5800 St. Joseph Road on the southeast corner of the Saint Joe and Saint Joe Center Roads, contact information and maps are in a kiosk on the east side of cemetery. Parker Cemetery website has their history, photos, names, burial information, maps, and more at: www.parkercemeteryfw.com/. The original St. Joseph United Methodist Church was also located with the cemetery in an existing schoolhouse on the southeast corner of St. Joe Center Road, then moved to the northwest corner in 1863, then in 1957 moved down the road to the Reed Road and St. Joe Center Road intersection from the church history. Church history also says John Chapman, aka Johnny Appleseed attended early church meetings along the St. Joseph River which is about half a mile west of the cemetery and eventual church location when Johnny Appleseed died on March 11, 1845, his funeral was conducted by the Methodist circuit rider.

Earliest date 1871. Not in use. DAR site states "Named after Michael Pierre, an early French settler from Bettnig, France who was interred in this cemetery in 1871. At one time there was also a log cabin that served as a church for the Pierre Settlement on the site, which was known as St. Michael’s."

St. Michael's Catholic church, built on the farm of John Pierre in 1870, came third. This mission met the needs of a certain period, but with the trend of Catholic settlement in other directions, the building of St. Leo's at Leo, and of St. Vincent's near Academic, the church building has been abandoned and now stands empty and deserted by all but the graves of its early members, which still populate the little cemetery.
