Rev War soldiers David WESNER and Joseph REANY (REINEY) are believed to be buried in this cemetery. When searching for the gravesites, no identifiable stones or markers could be found. Lots of stones are missing as you can see in the pictures. Even though descedants of David WESNER put up a new stone for him in 1961 it too can not be found.

This cemetery is located south of Newberry, Indiana in Section 36
of Cass Township, Greene County, Indiana.

Going south on US Hwy 231 in Newberry, turn left or east onto CR 675S and go past town hall and fire station for a very short distance and turn right or south go about one miles or less, turn right or west onto CR 775S and the cemetery is located at that intersection on the right.
