Unmarked graves to be moved from Hendricks County Home (1981)

source: Danville Gazette (Danville, Indiana) - issue of Thursday, October 8, 1981 - page 1, columns 1-3:

According to a newspaper article, in October 1981 the Hendricks County Commissioners gave permission to the State Highway Department to move 80 to 85 unmarked graves that had been discovered at the Hendricks County Home in Danville. The graves, most of which had no identification, had been found outside of the county home's graveyard area, and the remains were to be relocated to South Cemetery in Danville. This discovery came as the Highway Department was expanding US 36 to 4 lanes and moving the path of the highway as it went through Danville.
