Rogersville Cemetery - Stoney Creek Township

Est. 1834

   This old cemetery was started by the ME Church in 1834 when Jabish Luellen deeded the land to the church to be used for the erection of a church, or house of worship, and a burial ground for its members. Rogersville, laid out by James O. Rogers and John Colburn, was a growing little village in the mid 1800s with a population of about seventy. It was the mid point between New Castle and Muncie on the old Messick pike. It had a hotel, black smith shop, doctor, dry goods store, harness shop and a shoe store. It was also a stop on the "Underground Railroad" It had visions of becoming a large metropolis at one time…. until the railroads and turnpikes were located way south and northeast of the of the village and killed any hope of future growth. Just think where it could have been today with Summit Lake being where it is. There is a lot of history in this part of Henry County.
   Rogersville Cemetery is under a Conservation Management Agreement between the Central Indiana Land Trust Inc. (CILTI) and Stoney Creek Township. Under this agreement, CILTI manages the native prairie habitat on the properties for preservation purposes. These small sites are some of the few remnants of native prairie vegetation that existed prior to European settlement in portions of east-central Indiana. Prairie species present include big blue stem, little blue stem, New Jersey tea, black-eyed Susan, beebalm, Indian grass, pale-spiked lobelia, showy tick trefoil, rose pink, flowering spurge, and lance-leaved coreopsis.
