    • (1) Tombaugh, Jean C. and Wendell C., Fulton County Indiana Cemetery Inscriptions, Rochester Township - I.O.O.F. Cemetery, Rochester, IN: 1993:

      The Rochester Mausoleum

      I.O.O.F. Cemetery

      The Rochester Mausoleum Company was organized and incorporated on April 8, 1911, for the purpose of constructing and maintaining community mausoleums at and in the vicinity of the City of Rochester, Indiana.

      For this purpose, Lots No. 23 and 24 in Joseph A. Myers' Subdivision of Out Lot 25 in Shryock & Bozarth's Addition to the town of Rochester, were purchased.

      The Rochester Mausoleum was constructed and crypts sold, and bodies accepted for burial therein.

      On October 13, 1970, a case was filed in the Fulton Circuit Court, alleging that for more than ten years last past, there had been no elected, qualified and acting officers or directors of the company. Also that for more than 20 years last past, the First National Bank of Rochester, Rochester, Indiana, had acted as trustee of the funds of said company.

      Also, that the said mausoleum was in a state of extreme disrepair, and constituted a public nuisance and should be removed, requiring the reinterment of all bodies presently interred therein.

      In April, 1971, 124 bodies were removed from the Rochester Mausoleum, and reinterred in a mass burial site, along the east side of the I.O.O.F. Cemetery. Only three of these have dates.

      We understand that the Rochester Mausoleum record book is lost. . . .
