Does anybody know who maintains the records for West Point Cemetery in Liberty Indiana? Thanks.

The last time I was there..25 years ago, it was a little old lady. She wasn't very helpful. If you need more than names try to get in touch with the courthouse.

My Campbells are there and so are my Forkners but they are listed as Faulkner

West Point cemetery was "abandoned" by its board earlier this year. They had complained that they did not have enough income to compete with the cost of maintaining the cemetery. A group of citizens have gotten together and formed a new board. The records are sitting behind me at the Union County Public Library HOWEVER I have not really looked at them. According to some they are VERY hard to figure out. We will just have to wait and see what happens at the cemetery.

Karen, is there someone at the Union County Public Library who will do some look-ups when time permits? My email address is gerri_burke@yahoo.com. Thank you!

The books are sitting. I have looked in them once. It will be a long time before I understand the system. We are just housing them. They still belong to the cemetery. We have a written version online at

The books are old, smelly and do a job on my allergies. I hope the above link will help. I will have more time later this summer after we get done with inventory, the new website and summer reading program.
