Can somone give directions to the Bethany Cemetery in Crawford Cty., IN.?
to Bethany Cemetery and Newton Cemetery
I was just there a couple of weeks ago and took pictures.
To reach the cemetery you must go to Eckerty. From old 64 to 11 into Eckerty, cross the railroad tracks in town and take a right, then a left right away and go up a steep hill. This road is called Eckerty Doolittle Road. Stay on this road - stay on the blacktop - about 1/2 mile and you will come to a Y. Veer off to the left, and stay on this road to the second Y and veer to the right. The road may change names once (it can be confusing) but it's still Eckerty Doolittle Road. Go about one mile or so and you will come to a T in the road. Take a left. Go about 1/3 of a mile and the Church and the cemetery are on the left. The church is a red brick building with a long stone driveway. I have a list of people buried there up until 1994, and then a few more that I took pictures of the headstones. I didn't take pictures of every headstone, just my family, which are St. Clair, Sinclair, Sigler, Walls, Beard, Wright.
To Newton Cemetery:
If you go straight on the blacktop road past Bethany Union church/cemetery, you will come to Newton Cemetery which is an old abandoned cemetery on the Eckerty Doolittle Road at the top of the high hill. There is no road and you will have to walk about 1/2 a mile up the hill to reach it. In this cemetery are several unmarked graves, which are probably Judds or Newtons. There are Pond, Felker and Faulkenberg children, along with a Sigler baby (my ggaunt) and Mary E. Judd Brown. There are also headstones for other Newtons and Judds.
I forgot that Eckerty Doolittle road is also called Church Road or something like that. I have it written down in my book but I left my book on my desk at work.

Thank you for the directions.
In your listing for Bethany do you show a Dica/Dicy Angeline (Land) Tucker or any other Tuckers?

POTTER CEMETERY in Eckerty Not sure of the road it's on, but it might be Oak Hill Road - Eckerty Doolittle Road to Bethany Church Road (which is also Eckerty Doolittle) west to Oak Hill Road. The actual directions are: From Eckerty Rail Road crossing go right then turn left right away and up the steep hill. Stay on this road about a 1/2 mile and you will come to a Y in the road. Take a right. Go about 3/4 mile on this road and you will come to a cross road. Take a right. Go about 1/2 mile and the cemetery is on the left.
Potter Cemetery Row 5:
Sherman Tucker 1868-1887
Richard Tucker 1831-1855
Newton-Coles-Jones Cemetery: This cemetery is in the general vicinity of the others, but on a different road. I don't have the directions, just a map showing where it is. The cemetery is in a field with a guesstimate of about 20 graves, most of them unmarked because the stock has knocked down most of the rough headstones.
Mary Ann (Tucker) Newton, second wife of Peter Newton
next to Mary (Waddle) Newton, first wife of Peter Newton.
Re: Tucker at Bethany, Potter & Newton-Cole-Jones Cemeteries
Thank you so much for all the information, I see some more relatives in the list of Tuckers.
Not sure yet if the Samuel Tucker is a relative but, he is the first I have seen with a burial record of an Indiana Volunteer from that time in our country's history.
I have a gg-uncle, Tilford Fisher who died in the war, April 16, 1848 that I have not been able to find where he is buried.
