Clearwater Cemetery – Clearwater

534 N. Tracy Avenue

I could not find much information on this cemetery.  About 3,500 people are interred here. It appears to have started sometime in the early 1860’s. 

It turns out the oldest grave is an empty one.  The body of William Hobson was lost in the Civil War.  Hobson was born in 1820 in Marathon, Ohio and died September 22, 1863 in Georgia.  He was a sergeant of Company 1, 38th Regiment Indiana Infantry

The tombstone’s inscription reads, “ Wounded at the battle of Chickamauga and died 9 days thereafter and with the many heroes who gave their lives to save the Union. His Grave is Unknown.”

There are no famous graves listed for the Clearwater Cemetery.  In a previous post about Buffington Cemetery we researched the lone person interred there.  Oscar Buffington.  His parents were Cynthia and John Buffington. Oscar’s parents and three siblings are all buried here.
