Overview of Cemetery

Our thanks to Brenda Horton who supplied many of the photos for this site. Please note that due to identity theft, I do not list
preneed stones on site.
The listing below is a combination of several readings that were done. That is why you will see contradicting numbers in some instances.
Would be happy to hear from those of you who have information on this cemetery or the families of LaPorte County.

Reuben Hill
Herald Chronicle: La Porte, Indiana, Thursday 9 December 1886

An Entire Family Killed
Tuesday afternoon while Reuben Hill, two of his daughters and two sons were attempting to cross the Grand Trunk at Mill Creek,
the limited express going west struck the wagon between the forward and hind wheels, demolishing it, killing Mr. Hill and his sons and
one daughter and injuring the other daughter so badly that she died about nine p.m. The bodies were dreadfully mangled.
The girl that was not instantly killed had the back of her head mashed to a jelly and her breast was crushed. When taken up she was unconscious. 
The accident is attributed to the fact that that some freight cars which were standing on the track prevented Mr. Hill from seeing the approaching train,
which was the limited express going at the rate of fifty-five miles an hour. Witnesses of the accident testified before the Coroner
that no warning was given by the engineer. Mr. Hill was a widower and was about fifty-five years of age. One daughter was aged seven
and the other nine years. The sons were fifteen and seventeen respectively. The party were on their way to Walkerton where two
of Mr. Hillís married daughters reside. Deputy Coroner Annis was conveyed to the scene by Constable Walker to whom we are indebted
for the above facts. The Constable has subpoenaed by telegraph the conductor, engineer and fireman of the train who are at Battle Creek,
directing them to report here forth with as witnesses.
