Dillingham Cemetery, Liberty TownshipIndex of Dillingham Cemetery burials . . . .

The Dillingham Cemetery is located on the west side of Old Indiana 49 (Business Route 49) at the intersection with County Road 750 North, and was originally part of the Olcott Dillingham farm. The cemetery was last read in November 1993 by Eleanor Turpin for the Northwest Indiana Genealogical Society (NWIGS). The cemetery is well-kept despite being inactive; the last known burial occurred in 1944. Note that the controller of the Dillingham Cemetery considers it still open for burials.

It is believed that there are at least six unmarked burials in the Dillingham Cemetery.

CLARK, Lavina (Cole)
Birth: 1820
Death: 6 - 19 - 1886
Notes: Daughter of David Cole and Hannah (Parker) Cole; wife of W. R. Clark. There is only a simple field stone with the following figures crudely chiseled on it - L. Cole 1886. The Boy Scouts keep moving this stone to the side of the cemetery so they can mow it, and I [Tim Cole] keep returning it to one of the unmarked graves since I don't know where she is really buried within this cemetery. She was a sister to Edward P. Cole and was living alone in a small cabin on the property of John C. Cole, her nephew, as reported in the 1880 Census. I think her death was recorded in a Valparaiso newspaper as only a line item in a neighborhood news section, but it was June 19, 1886. She was evidently born in 1820 (from the Census report) in Bronson Township, Huron County, Ohio. Lavina was married December 23, 1861, in Huron County, Ohio, to a W. R. Clark. Any subsequent circumstances concerning this marriage are unknown, only that she arrived a few years later in Porter County, expecting to live with her brother, but his suicide and the turmoil it caused within the family prevented her from achieving that. His son John evidently took care of her after that and until her death. Her husband did not come with her, and she resumed her maiden name -- he may have died, and this may have been her second marriage.

COLE, Kenneth
Birth: 0 - 0 - 1897
Death: 3 - 0 - 1897
Notes: Son of George Jackson Cole and Emma J. (Carlson) Cole.
Obituary: CHESTERTON CHIPS -- A sad illustration of what bad roads can do, is that of Geo. Cole, of Woodville. His infant child was taken ill with lung fever, and he did not get a doctor, not knowing the child's condition was dangerous, because he thought no doctor would respond to his call, the Valparaiso road being almost impassable. The child died week before last. Had there been a gravel road between Chesterton and Valparaiso, it is very probably that the child would have had medical attendance and its life saved.

Newspaper Item: Decease of John Dillingham -- AN INCIDENT IN HIS LIFE -- Mr. Editor, -- Hearing of the recent death of old Mr. Dillingham, the oldest man of the county, and one of the earliest settlers, calls to mind an incident of his long and eventful life, which he related to me some twenty years ago, and which, two or three years ago I got him to repeat to me and I committed it to paper, thinking it would be interesting to the readers of The Republic in connection with his Obituary Notice, which his great age gave reason to expect in a few months or years. These were his words: "About the year 1788, and when I was about 16 years old, I was a sailor on board a merchant ship, on a voyage from Boston to Portugal, for a cargo of wine. On our homeward bound passage, we had provided for only a twenty day's passage, and the storm was such that we were kept nearly forty days at sea; during the latter part of which time we were on very short allowance, and actually reduced to such an extremity as to seriously contemplate the necessity of casting lots which of our number should first be sacrificed for food to sustain the rest."<br>

WEAVER, Jennie
Birth: 0 - 0 - 0
Death: 4 - 24 - 1896
Obituary: Woodville. -- Death entered the home of Vance Weaver last Friday and took away little Jennie Weaver to a better home. On Monday last she was to school, when she was taken ill. She was taken home and seemed to be getting better but she gradually grew worse and last Friday morning a doctor was called but she died before the doctor arrived. She was adopted when three years old by Mr. and Mrs. Weaver, her former name being Newberry. Her funeral took place Sunday afternoon at Cole's school house, Rev. Hufford officiating, and the remains laid to rest in the Dillingham cemetery. This was a sad blow for Mr. and Mrs. Weaver, and they have the sympathy of all.
