What is this Monroe County, Indiana cemetery?

+4 votes

I found the death certificate for Sarah (Hamilton) Byers, and it lists her cemetery. But I can't find a cemetery by that name.

It looks to me like it clearly says Houslin Cemetery, but I can't find a cemetery by that name.

The undertaker's address is in Bloomington, Monroe, Indiana.

I thought maybe someone with more knowledge of Indiana cemeteries might have a clue.

(Also, I'm not sure if it was okay to post the image of the death record or not, since I downloaded it from an Ancestry database. I wouldn't have normally, but I needed the image to be somewhere so I could link to it.)

I’m pretty sure thats “Houston.” There are three of them in Indiana, but I don’t know which one.

Oops. Yep. Now that you say that, it seems pretty obvious. :-)
Oh, wait! There is one in Monroe County, Indiana.
And it looks like there is indeed a tiny, abandoned cemetery in Monroe County called Houston Cemetery so that must be the one. Thanks!

I didn't find her when I searched Find a Grave because her name was spelled Sarrah, per her death certificate.

Thanks! I found it once I figured out it was Houston Cemetery. I hadn't thought to look for her first named spelled Sarrah, like in her death certificate.
I saw the pic of the old cemetery following your link, Jessica, and it made me so sad. I hate to see cemeteries in this condition.
