The following information was submitted by Michael L. Tedrow, Mount Vernon, Indiana 47620.  The cemetery was read by William "Bill" Henderson of Harrison Co. to whom we are indebted.

The Tedrow Cemetery is located in the NE quarter of section 19, Township 11, Range 4. It is located on Toker Road (TR164) which is .6 Mi west of Millers Station Rd.(CR4). Turn into the barnyard and walk .4 Mi to the family cemetery at the top of the hill. Established in 1812 - .0828 acres. The Brick farm house here has been torn down.
