Gravestone 16 Penniston or Croan Cemetery

Penniston or Croan Cemetery, Madison County IN: The farmer who owned this land in the early 20th century removed the stones and plowed the cemetery, destroying the graves of about thirty people. Now its a small fenced off area in front of a house with only this memorial to mark the burials.

Samuel Moore, listed as a known veteran buried there, is my ancestor. My research shows that his wife Eliza, along with her parents Isaac and Sarah Elizabeth are also buried here.
