Richardson Cemetery
(Big Springs Cemetery)

 

Richardson Cemetery is located in Marion Township, Boone County Indiana in the town of Big Springs. It is on 1100 East just past the intersection with 200 North on the west side of the road. This cemetery was inventoried on August 6, 1998 by Jane A Heine and her daughter. At the time of the inventory, the cemetery was mowed and in fairly good condition. Some stones were very difficult to read, therefore accuracy is not guaranteed. I inventoried the cemetery by rows from the east side heading west.
