PERIGO CEMETERY

6778 SOUTH 100 WEST

GRANT TOWNSHIP

CHASE, INDIANA

 

FOUNDED IN 1840

 

RECORDED BY LADONNA CLEMINGS CARRY IN 1999

 

 

 

 

 

The census rolls of 1840,1850,1860,1870 show that the Perigo, Stokes, Van Horn and Johnston or Johnson families were neighbors,

So deaths that occurred before the Boswell Cemetery was opened meant burial in the Perigo Cemetery.
