Clear Springs Friends Cemetery

Harrison Township, Henry County, IN

   This cemetery is one of the earliest cemeteries in Henry County, established on February 24, 1834 when Phineas Ratliff sold land to the church trustees; Elias Newby, Joseph Ratliff and Rice Price, five acres of land for $23.00 and cents for the erecting of a house of worship and a cemetery to be used by the members of said church and the Clear Springs neighborhood. Phineas died on June 13, 1870 and is buried here.
   This cemetery was originally located in Greensboro Township until 1838 when Harrison Township was formed from parts of Greensboro, Spiceland and Wayne Townships. As with all old Quaker cemeteries there are many unmarked burials in here. Tombstones were a vanity issue until about the 1860s.
   The Clear Springs church closed in 1966 and the building was demolished in the 1960s but the front stoops were left intact as a memorial to the Clear Springs church and the old neighborhood.
