SUMMIT CEMETERY

One mile west of Larwill at the intersection of the Fort Wayne/Warsaw road and the Huntington/ Goshen road the town of Summit grew until the coming of the railroad in Huntsville (Larwill). It consisted of stores, doctors, saw-mills, churches and schools. The only thing remaining is a cemetery which is now a farm.

Being the first cemetery in the township, it stands to reason that many of the stones are gone or illegible.

We have an 1892 report of the cemetery as printed in the Columbia City Post and Mail. (Mar 30, 1892).

Mrs Marjorie Kite did a fine reading of the cemetery in the early 1960s.

The entries that show no row number are ones that appeared in this 1892 article but were not there when Mrs Kite did her reading.
