If you have a genealogy request for information please send your request to jerichofriendsmeetingrcin at yahoo.com Scans and photos will be gladly shared of the information we have and of cemetery stones. Jericho has two cemeteries, the first was near the first meeting house, and was used from the beginnings of the meeting until 1835, when the Pike family donated the land where the current meeting house and cemetery are. The Pike family buried there on the hill well before that, and many of their graves are little more marked than with a piece of slate that is laying flat with the ground. Donald Peacock is the sexton of the cemetery, and representative of the Jericho Friends Cemetery Board.
For more information or copies of original documents you will need to contact the Indiana Yearly Meeting Archive of Records, stored at the Lilly Library at Earlham College. Tom Hamm is the current Custodian of the Records for IYM.
