THIS MONTH'S SUBJECT:  -  "The old chapel at Crown View Cemetery"

From Rose Dwiggins Evans, Class of 1967:  I don't know when the little chapel at Crown View was last used; I'm pretty sure it was used when I was a small child (about half a century ago!).  My grandpa, Carl Spear, was the sexton (not sure what that is) for the cemetery.  My brothers & I grew up either playing or working in the cemetery; that's probably why none of us ever had any fear of cemeteries.  I have a few wooden folding chairs that were once used in the little chapel; I guess Grandpa took some of them home when they were no longer used out there.  This whole story basically doesn't give any information!  I can say that I do love that little chapel & am always relieved to see that it's still there when I have occasion to visit the cemetery.

From A Centennial Salute to Sheridan, Indiana, 1860 - 1960, researched and compiled by James L. (Jim) Land, SHS 1960
From Jim Land, SHS60, From The Sheridan News, June 26, 1903
-- One of the most beautiful cemeteries in central Indiana was dedicated at this place on Sunday last.  It was a beautiful day and probably 4000 people were present although the number has been placed much higher.  A procession consisting of various Orders, Sunday School children, Soldiers as of two wars and the 30 incorporators headed by the Citizens Band, was formed at Main Street and preceded to the cemetery where the sessions were held.  The procession extended half the distance from the starting point to the cemetery gates.  The program consisted of a short history of the enterprise by the vice-president, Dr. J. C. Newby, the principal address by Rev. C.W. Tinsley of Terre Haute and the final consecration by the president, John H. Cox.  The opening prayer was by Elder Conner and Rev. C. E. Parsons read from the scripture, while the music was furnished by a choir led by G. W. Scott.

-- The address of Rev. Tinsley was listened to attentively for 35 minutes.  He gave a short history of ancient methods of disposing of the dead and showed that the custom of burying came from the Jews.  He also spoke of death, the grave, and the resurrection.

-- Dr. Newby, in his history of the Association and its objects, read a section from the By Laws of the organization in reference to its perpetuity.  Said section provides that the revenues from all sources go into a fund for the perpetual care and benefit of the cemetery.  No Officer or person receives any salary or compensation except the Superintendent or the persons who labor on the grounds.  The organization was formed in November, 1901, but no work was done on the grounds until about one year ago.  There are several persons already buried there and quite a number have been removed from other places.  A large number of lots have been sold.
