Dubois County Cemetery Locations

The locations of these cemeteries were pinned using a physical map with approximate locations, coordinates from, Wilson’s Historical Notes, and other resources. Not every pin is in the precise location as some cemeteries did not have exact coordinates available, or they were only mentioned in oral history. This list does not constitute every registered cemetery in Dubois County as there was not a sufficient amount of information to give an approximate location for some cemeteries. *NOTE* There are some cemeteries located on private property & individuals should not trespass.
