This cemetery may actually be in Ripley County, Brown Township. It depends on how you look at it. As you go north on Barbersville Rd. from Canaan you will cross the sign for the Ripley County line, but you come to Buchanan Cemetery before you reach the road that marks the Ripley/Jefferson County lines.
Names marked with an asterisk (*) are stones that were moved from the Buchanan “Family Plot” which was located southwest of the Buchanan Cemetery. These stones were moved sometime between 1972 and 1984.
The McLaughlin Cemetery stones were also moved to the Buchanan Cemetery during this same time period, having been removed from their original burial site in Jefferson County, southwest of Buchanan Cemetery. These stones are noted with a double asterisk (**).
Key: W = Wife; D = Daughter; S = Son; SS = Same Stone
There were about 30 stones that were unreadable, some were probably footstones.
DIRECTIONS: Take S.R. 421 to S.R. 250 to Canaan. Turn left at the first road out of Canaan, which is Barbersville Road. At the “T” in the road, turn left and follow the road up the hill. (The “County Line” sign will appear 3.5 miles after making the turn onto Barbersville Road out of Canaan). Continue another three-tenths of a mile to the Buchanan Cemetery. The cemetery will be on the north (left) side of the road on a hill with steps leading up to it and enclosed with an iron fence. A model of the Buchanan Station will be on the south side of the road.
KEY: SS = Same Stone, W = Wife, S = Son, D = Daughter, y = year(s), m = month(s), d = day(s)
