Indiana Cemeteries Project



Washington Park East Cemetery was originally established as a Masonic cemetery in the 1920's and in 1956 it was purchased by The Washington Park Cemetery Association. The cemetery sits on farm property that was owned by the Buchanan family who had first settled in the area in the 1820s.

This free space page for the Washington Park East Cemetery is part of WikiTree's Indiana Cemeteries Project, and was created to document the life and times of our ancestors that are interred there. The Indiana Cemeteries Project is a subproject of the larger U.S. Cemeteries Project.

Washington Park East Cemetery is located at 10612 East Washington Street in the east side of Indianapolis, the capital city in Indiana. The cemetery is owned and maintained by the Washington Park Cemetery Association.

This page is a work in progress, and will remain so until the Table of Interments (below) is completed. The Table of Interments is a sortable listing of persons interred at this cemetery, some or all of whom are linked to existing WikiTree profiles. Although all grave markers in this cemetery have been photographed (or will be shortly), the photos can only be displayed for persons with existing WikiTree profiles. If you know of a person interred at this cemetery that should be linked to an existing WikiTree profile, or needs to have a profile created for them, please contact Tom Shaw or Scott Fulkerson for assistance.

To Do

Project members are needed to:

  • Assist with data collection and grave marker transcriptions
Additional photography and GPS data collection is needed, and previously collected data can be sent by email to other members willing to assist with transcriptions.
  • Link existing profiles or create new profiles for persons listed in the Table of Interments
When complete, everyone listed in the Table of Interments will be linked to their own WikiTree profile, and to a photo of that person's corresponding grave marker. The created profiles can include other genealogical and biographical information as well as a listing of sources for documentation.
  • Validate links and transcription information
Profile and photo links and transcribed information needs to be cross-checked to ensure accuracy.
  • Create an audio/video tour of the cemetery
Record a virtual tour of the cemetery that can be viewed as downloadable media on computers, tablets or other device. Such a tour would take the viewer around the cemetery to explore the history of the people buried here. Background information can be supplied. Those with mobile internet access can access online links to more information.
