Tunker Cemetery

Tunker cemetery originally belonged to the Sugar Creek Church of the Brethren the ground had been donated by a J. Kreider to use for burial ground. Now it is under the auspices of the township trustee. The cemetery location is on 350W just south of 800S and contains about 110 graves. The lot is long and narrow with the 6 rows running north and south parallel to 350W.

Previously the cemetery was read and compiled by the DAR in 1948 though the individual readers are unknown. Dr. Williamson also printed an index in 1965. The 1997 reading was done by Tonya Brown and Jeanette Brown.
