      CENTER/SCOTT CEMETERY

      Center Cemetery, in Liberty Township, is one long ago abandoned. The earliest date on a stone is February 27, 1854 and the latest July 11, 1887. People living within the mile do not know of its existence. A grove of trees, in the center of the section is the only evidence to any traveler on the four roads which bound the section that there is a cemetery there. The Atlas of 1877 refers to it as the "old cemetery on the James Scott Farm."

      A road east and west, passed thru the middle of this section many years ago but has long since been closed and there is now no ingress to the cemetery. I walked over the plowed ground and thru two fields of tall corn before reaching it.

      As one would expect, tall trees, vines and some grass make locomotion difficult. The markers are fallen or broken and many may be hid by the fallen vegetation of the years.

      The Center Christian Church is at some distance from this cemetery. A deed to this plot of land was made to this church and they are still the owners of it. The Grant County Deed Book, P pp. 254 reads as follows:
      "that James Scott and his wife Annis Scott of Grant County Indiana in consideration of the Christian love & feelings toward the human family generally, have granted, bargained, donated and set apart for public use as a burying ground to inter any and every person that has not forfeited the laws of their God and Country and the further consideration of one dollar to us paid by Dugan Wall, Elwood Arnett, Marmaduke Mendenhall and John Harrold trustees of the Christian Church - Deer Creek, Grant Co., Indiana, and to their successors in office as trustees of said church forever the following tract or parcel of land" then follows a description of the tract. This is signed by James Scott and his wife Annis Scott. William Neal, Surveyor May 1, 1856.


      US BLM indicates two land grants to James Scott on Mar 15, 1837:
      ENW Sec 23/ T23N R7E 2ND PRINCIPAL MERIDIAN 80 ACRE GRANT
      SWNW Sec 23/T23N R7E 2ND PRINCIPAL MERIDIAN 40 ACRE GRANT
