Where might I acquire a list of interments in the "Old Salem Cemetery near Ballstown" in Ripley County IN. I understand it is different from the Salem Church Cemetery and has lots of Hudson/Hutsonsburied there and maybe the Thackeries.

Armated Hutson - Hutson cemetery (Old Salem Cemetery?) Ripley, IN

First Thank you I had that list that one Are there more graves or is it quite small? Joseph and Mary Thackery should be there and Thomas and Ruth Hutson and Ida Hutson (d: 2000) whose Obit lists it as where she will be interred.

Also I have wondered about one thing for several years. My question is about Armated Hutson (not on your list but in the online list for the Hutson cemetery) Perhaps Armated's dates were misread on his stone. He is never shown in any census with Allen and Roxie but should ahve been if the online records of the grave are correct:

"HUTSON, Armated 25 Oct 1887 aged 45Y 3M s/o Allen & Roxey"

Born in 1842, he should have been shown up in the 1850 (age 8)and 1860 census (age 18) with Allen & Roxie but he didn't. Is it possible that the stone actually reads:

"HUTSON, Armated 25 Oct 1837 aged 15y 3m s/o Allen & Roxey"

Misreading 8 for 3 and 4 for 1 is a common graveyard error. This would mean Armated was an older child who came from VA with Allen and Roxie, but died not long after they arrived.

Im so sorry but I missed his name on the list. It reads-

Armated Hutson died-25 Oct 1887 s/o Allen and Roxey
I checked and I didnt miss any other ones. The only thing that it says is that the cemetery is located 1/4 mile NW of the Salem church. It must be a very small cemetery, though. Joseph Thackerys name is ther but it says his wife is Sophia Thackery.There is no Thomas, Ruth or Ida listed.
In the St. John's United Methodist church in Sunman though there are 3-
Berdella Hutson b. 27 Mar 1898 d. 1 Jul 1967
Calvin W. Hutson b. 21 Feb 1903 d. 15 Jan 1985
Milton C. Hutson b. 21 Feb 1917 d. 2 Mar 2000
I will look and see what I can find in the census. Have you ever gone to MY INDIANA HOME. COM. It has a bunch of marriages of Hutsons on there and births and in the Toph papers. Barb

That is very possible. I looked and could find no reference to him either. Either the reading is wrong or maybe Armated was either his middle name and he went by his first name or vica versa. I find a lot of them did that. That is a very unusual name and cant be found. I would check each one of the children and see if they cant be accounted for in each census and go from there. I even checked the Civil war records because he would have been just the right age to have been in the Civil War. No Luck!
On the Sopia Thackery, Mary could have been her other name
also. Wish I could help. There is a tree on Ancestry with Allen Hutson b. 1795 but it is marked private so no help there.

One online genealogy says that NANCY HUTSON (b: c1824 VA) w/o Henry F. Watterson (b: c1814 VA)is also a d/o Allen Hutson
They were married 10 Feb 1850 Ripley IN)

I never found Nancy, because she married before the 1850 census, when the family were all enumerated instead of just the HOH.

She is enumerated on 6Sept1850 with Henry in Laughery, Ripley, IN (where Allen lived), along four of his children by another wife and Henry's mother.

Wow 15 children - you go Roxie!
