Note of Caution

  • I have not been able to figure out if Mt. Tabor and Mt. Tablor cemeteries are one in the same. Historical and current maps list the spelling in both ways but the confusion is compounded by parts of Dunkirk, Indiana being located in Blackford county and some in Jay county. Is there anyone with any further information to help clear up this confusion? Please add any clarification to the page. Thanks. --Cos1776 16:52, 13 October 2013 (UTC)
