Westbury Friends Cemetery

Stone Creek Township, Henry Co., IN

   Located on the Buck Creek Pike at its intersection of CR 600N in Stoney Creek Township, about one mile northwest of Five Points.
   This little burial ground was set a side on 7 Apr 1838 by John Marshall, Stephen Potter and Luke Miles, trustees of the Westbury Friends meeting, The old church was about two hundred yards northwest of where a historic marker was placed a few years ago. There are supposed to be four markers in the pile of rubbish and fieldstones, but I was unable to locate any of them due to it being over-grown with bramble and briars.
   Old-timers say that at one time there were several stones out in the field before they were eventually removed and piled in the southeast corner of the field where they are supposed to be today.
   This list of names was compiled from the Friends church records and stones that were visible in the 1970s.
