First Burial in Bremen Cemetery

The following descripition is from History of Marshall County, Indiana 1836 to 1880 by Daniel McDonald, published in 1881. In a chapter on German Township, page 137:


The burial-ground situated on a rolling piece of ground near the northeast part of the town plat, is owned by an association of charitable people, residents of Bremen. The first person buried there was a man by the name of Youst. The coffin in which he was placed was a trough, dug out of a poplar log, and his remains were taken to their last resting-place by a yoke of oxen driven by Daniel Ringle.
