The thirteen included on our web site Pioneers Cemeteries and Their Stories, Madison County, Indiana. were initially researched by Madison County historian Raymond Davis.

Henry Russell, Revolutionary War soldier, was at Valley Forge in 1777. He was born in 1754 and served as a private in Maryland's 1st Regiment. He died in 1836 in Chesterfield at eighty-two years. Henry is listed in the DAR Index of Revolutionary Patriots. Mr. Russell was one of the early Union Township pioneers. Henry's son, also named Henry, was a class leader in the Otterbein Church. This veteran's daughter Nancy was the wife of Brazleton Noland. Henry Russell's grave retains the memorial plaque placed there by the Daughters of the American Revolution. The Kikthawenund Chapter of the DAR had historian Edward J. Ronsheim, Sr., speak at the dedication ceremonies: "Only by preserving history are we fit to make it. These people braved the dangers of the frontier to establish that which we enjoy. Surely they earned from us a right to believe that the stones which mark their lives and deaths will be held as a sacred trust and historical tie between the past, today and the future."
