Directions: New Chapel Cemetery, Clark County, Indiana

The best way to reach this from Jeffersonville, Indiana is to go East om State Hwy 62 and go to the 1st traffic light past the State Road 265 (Hopefully one day will be I-265). At the traffic light that will be Utica - Sellersburg Road, turn right go to stop sign where the road T's out. Turn left. about 1/4 mile down the road there is a stop sign, go straight do not continue on Utica Sellersburg Road. As you go throught this stop sign the road says DEAD END. The cemetery and church is all the way at the end on your left. If you enter the second entrance to the cemetery on an asphalt road it bears to the left or to the right on a grass road. Take the grassy area to the old section of the cemetery, all the patriots buried there are in this section.

BASIL PRATHER - GEORGE LEWIS - ISAAC HOLMAN, and I'm think one more. I'm still also searching for a Peter Ditzler, Pitzler, Tittsler in Clark County.
