Relocation of pioneer cemetery starts today
The first steps in relocating a small cemetery before an interstate expansion project begin today.

Crews are to remove headstones from the plot near I-69 and I-465.
Eventually the remains in Whitesell Cemetery will be moved to the Pioneer section of Crown Hill Cemetery.
The cemetery relocation will allow for a highway project to increase capacity on one of most heavily traveled highways, I-465 and I-69.
The Whitesell Cemetery is an 1800's family cemetery with approximately 30 known gravesites.
