      Hi Sandy,
      I sure do know the name. It is Redenbaugh Cemetery. It is off of231 in Crawfordsville, at the Southmont High School. If you are on231 heading towards Crawfordsville, the school is on the left side ofthe road, you turn on a county rd to get to the road to the school,turn left on to the school street, and the cemetery is on the left.
      It was discovered a few years ago, and it was almost completelydestroyed. It's been restored, and Frederick's grave was kept insidethe school for about 3 years until they finally had the whole cemeteryrestored.
      The land that the school is on, once belonged to the Redenbaughs/ andDouglas's. And all the farm land across from the school belonged tothem.

      "[NI2052] JEREMIAH REDENBAUGH is a retired farmer, living just outsidethe city limits of Crawfordsville, but he still retains possession ofhis farm, which is located in Walnut Township, Montgomery County. Mr.Redenbaugh is a son of Henry R. Redenbaugh, one of the early settlersof this portion of Indiana, who was born born January 2, 1800, nearRodden, Ohio.

      Frederick Redenbaugh, the grandfather of our subject, was a native ofGermany, came to this country some time during the last century, andfirst located in Pennsylvania, whence he moved to Ohio, and from thereto Indiana in the early days of the settlement of the state. Aftercoming here he first settled among the pioneers of Jefferson County,and then came to Montgomery County, where his life was closed at theadvanced age of eighty-six years. He was a soldier under Gen. Harrisonat the famous battle of Tippecanoe, and he served with the Generalduring the war of 1812. He married Margaret Haney in Pennsylvania, andthey had twelve children, of whom their son William, who lives inFountain County at the advanced age of eighty-one years, is the onlysurvivor. The grandfather of our subject was an ardent Democrat in hisday, and was a leader in local politics.

      Henry Redenbaugh Was the fifth child born to his parents, and was ayoung man when he accompanied them to Jefferson County, this state. Hethere met and married Mary Douglas, daughter of Jeremiah and Jane(Huthert) Douglas. They had come from England to this country andfirst settled near Cincinnati, whence they afterwards removed toJefferson County, this state. After his marriage Henry Redenbaughremained awhile in Jefferson County, and then came to MontgomeryCounty in 1828. He took up eighty acres of government land, which hecleared and improved, and developed it into a fine farm, upon which heremained until his death, September, 1891, at the venerable age ofninety-one years. In dying he left behind him an honorable record asan active and useful pioneer, as a good citizen, and as a desirableneighbor. He was the father of twelve children, of whom the followinggrew up maturity and are still living: John, a painter, residing atNewton, Kansas.; Jeremiah; Mary (Mrs. Brush). who lives in Iowa; SarahAnn, who lives in Boone County; William R., a resident ofCrawfordsville; Joe, a resident of Mace, and Eliza (Mrs. McMullen) aresident of Boone County.

      Jeremiah Redenbaugh was born in Jefferson County, in the southern partof this state, May 25, 1824, and he was a child of three years whenhis parents brought him to their new home amid the pioneer scenes ofMontgomery County. He was reared in Scott Township, and has a distinctrecollection of the appearance of the country in all its wildness whenhe was a boy, and he can remember when Crawfordsville had but three orfour houses in it. He made his home. with his father until he wastwenty-one, and then married established a home of his own with thehelp of his wife. She was Elizabeth Corn in her maiden days and adaughter of William Corn, of Clark Township, one of the early settlersof the county.

      Twelve children were born to Mr. and Mrs. Redenbaugh, of whom five areliving: Sarah Jane, wife of Thomas N. Hosier; William, George W.,Eliza Ellen and Nancy Eddenfield. Mr. and Mrs. Hosier have one child,Viola Ellen, aged nine years. The names of the deceased children ofour subject are: Joseph Henry, Albert, Mary Alice, Andrew, Charlie andJohn, and one child who died in infancy unnamed. April 29, 1888,Jeremiah Redenbaugh had the misfortune to lose his wife, who hadwalked by his side for more than forty years, and to whoseencouragement, cheerful assistance and wise counsel he was greatlyindebted. Her age at the time of her death was sixty years, six monthsand twenty-seven days. She left behind her a blessed memory as awife,/ mother and friend.

      Mr. Redenbaugh bought a piece of land in Walnut Township after hismarriage, and there he and his wife commenced keeping house together.He worked hard to improve it, and bought other land-until his farmcomprised two hundred acres most excellent farming ]and. In 1886 heretired from active business, and from the rental of farm he derives agood income. His career farmer has placed him among the citizens ofthe township, although he began poor. This fact shows that besidebeing prudent and thrifty, he also carried on his methodically, andwas shrewd and far-seeing his management of his affairs. Politicallyhe is Democrat of stanch principles. He belongs to the MontgomeryCounty Horse Thief Detective Association, and has always enteredreadily into scheme for protecting the interests of the farmer."http://www.geocities.com/gscircle/notes.html

      The Madison Administration
      Battle of Tippecanoe
      November 7, 1811
      http://www.u-s-history.com/pages/h1017.html
      Following the signing of the Treaty of Greenville in summer 1795,relative peace prevailed between the white settlers and the natives ofthe Old Northwest. The Washington and Adams administrations at leastpaid lip service to the terms of the treaty, but Jefferson (the greatagrarian philosopher) sought additional lands for American farmersthrough a series of purchases from the tribes. Not all thefrontiersmen bothered with the niceties of treaties and simplyoccupied Indian lands illegally.
      Not without reason, resentment among the tribes ran high. In 1808,Tecumseh, a Shawnee chieftain, and his brother Tenskwatawa (known tothe Americans as The Prophet) launched a reform movement among theirpeople. They attempted to end the sale of additional lands to thewhites and to resist alcohol and other troublesome temptations of thecompeting culture. A new native settlement was built at the confluenceof the Wabash and Tippecanoe rivers (north of present-day Lafayette,Indiana) and became known as Prophet?s Town. The village became thefocal point of Tecumseh?s effort to rally the tribes east of theMississippi River in the hope of halting the spread of whitesettlements.
      William Henry Harrison was governor of the Indiana Territory andsuperintendent of the Northwest Indians. Fearing the growing strengthof Tecumseh?s confederacy, Harrison decided to strike quickly. Hemarched an army of 1,100 men along the Wabash toward Prophet?s Town.Tecumseh was temporarily out of the area on a recruiting venture amongthe Creeks in the south, but his brother prepared the men for battlewith fiery oratory ? including promises that they could not be harmedby the white men?s bullets. Shortly before dawn on November 7, 1811,Harrison?s soldiers were attacked. After a two-hour battle, thenatives were forced to flee and their village ? the gathering spot ofthe confederacy ?was destroyed. Some military historians regard theBattle of Tippecanoe as a draw, but note that it held importantramifications:
      The safety of the white settlements in the Indiana Territory becamemarkedly improved.
      The Prophet was discredited as a leader because of his inability toensure the promised invincibility from the opponents' bullets and alsobecause he had violated Tecumseh's earlier counsel to hold off anyarmed confrontation until his return.
      The confederation of the eastern tribes disintegrated.
      The bitterly disappointed Tecumseh, who did not return to Indiana foranother three months, remained an implacable foe of the Americansettlers. He would later become allied with the British andparticipate in the War of 1812.
      William Henry Harrison emerged with a reputation as the hero ofTippecanoe, an image that he would use to his political advantage inlater years.

      The War of 1812
      Causes of the War of 1812
      http://www.u-s-history.com/pages/h1963.html
      "Mr. Madison's War," as it was sometimes called, was fueled by severalfactors:
      Anger over the violation of American neutral rights
      The clamor of the so-called War Hawks
      The real or imagined British hand in stirring up Native Americanunrest in the West, particularly the exploits of Tecumseh.
      President Madison did not possess Jefferson's skill at keeping theUnited States out of war, but in any event the War Hawks' stridentactivities had changed the landscape. Popular opinion in the South andWest clearly favored the conflict. Madison realized, however, that thecountry was poorly prepared. The United States maintained a weak,scattered army and a navy that was virtually insignificant bycomparison to Britain's. The prospects and strategy of the UnitedStates left much to be desired.
      Nevertheless, pro-war sentiment helped carry Madison to a second termin the Election of 1812.
      1812-1815
      The war sealed America's independence. Failing to capture Canada, thearmy prevented the British from taking Baltimore and New Orleans.
      Most army battles occurred along the Canadian border, Chesapeake Bayregion and the Gulf of Mexico. Artillery units made a largecontribution.
      The War of 1812
      Battle of New Orleans
      January 1815
      Before peace was concluded in December 1814, the British launched aneffort to seize a portion of southern Louisiana, including the prizedcity of New Orleans.
      The renowned Battle of New Orleans occurred on January 8, 1815,several weeks after the Treaty of Ghent was signed. However, thetreaty had provided that the hostilities were to continue until bothsides ratified the agreement; that did not occur until February 1815.
      American forces, a mismatched group of militia and pirates underAndrew Jackson, decisively defeated British regulars, veterans of theNapoleonic Wars. British losses were approximately 700 killed and1,400 wounded; American losses amounted to only eight killed and 13wounded. The victory obviously had no impact on the outcome of thewar, but it was a major confidence builder for the American militaryand the nation.

      "Frederick "Redinbo
      Frederick Redinbo was born September 12, 1773, probably in BerksCounty, Pennsylvania, near the town of Reading, son of Henry andMargaret Redinbo (a.k.a. Redenbaugh, etc.). Frederick married AnnaMargaret Haney and parented his first son, George, who was born about1793, probably in Berks County, Pennsylvania. According to theHistory of Hamilton County, Ohio, by Henry A. & Mrs. Kate B. Ford,published in 1881, Frederick moved his family to Sycamore Township,Hamilton County, Ohio, in the spring of 1795 and settled there alongwith his parents and other siblings. On August 11, 1812, at the ageof 38, Frederick enlisted in the 1st Ohio Militia Regiment ofVolunteer Riflemen (Col. David Sutton's Regiment) in the battalioncommanded by Major Joseph Jenkins for a term of six months and wasassigned to the company of Capt. Asa Hinkle with the rank of private.His son, George, also enlisted at the same time making Frederick andGeorge the second known "Redinbo" father-and-son combination to servein Capt. Hinkle's Company. Frederick's brother, John Redinbo, andJohn's son, Jeremiah, also served under Capt. Hinkle. The militiaunit was organized at the "Cincinnati Encampment" and moved northwardfrom there along the western border of the State of Ohio, following aline of fortified encampments which had been erected previously by theforces of General "Mad" Anthony Wayne. Wayne had built numerous fortsin western Ohio during his campaign against the Indians whichculminated in the defeat of Chief Blue Jacket at the Battle of FallenTimbers in 1794. Some of these forts were still standing in variousstates of disrepair and were utilized by the American armies duringthe War of 1812, particularly by the forces under William HenryHarrison during his approach to Ft. Detroit which had fallen underBritish control less than a week after the enlistment of the Redinbos. Not much is known regarding the particular activities of Capt.Hinkle's Company during its six-month existence during the War of1812. Some evidence indicates that the unit spent at least part ofits time improving roads and guarding supply wagons. It is known thatCapt. Hinkle's Company was "mustered out" on February 11, 1813, at St.Mary's, a settlement now located in Auglaize County, Ohio, which wasformerly known as "Girty's Town." Ft. St. Mary's (a.k.a. Ft. Barbee)was one of the forts built by Anthony Wayne and later utilized as aheadquarters by William Henry Harrison prior to his advance on Ft.Detroit. At some point following his War of 1812 service, FrederickRedinbo moved from Hamilton County, Ohio, to Montgomery County,Indiana. Frederick's National Archives warrant file contains twoaffidavits filed from Montgomery County: one filed in 1850 fromCrawfordsville, Montgomery County, Indiana, and another filed fromMontgomery County on March 31,1855, in which Frederick states that, atthat time, he was 82 years of age. He had already been awarded abounty-land warrant (#7117) for 80 acres in May of 1851 for hisservice in the War of 1812. Frederick Redinbo reportedly died June15, 1856, near the town of Crawfordsville, Montgomery County, Indiana,shortly after filing the above-mentioned affidavit."

      "We now have 18 headstones or partial headstones. What follows is the
      information that we have from the headstones. * denotes a headstone;per Sharon-Redenbaugh researcher and descendant; Information obtainedfrom web site: www.myfamily.com that had been sent to Peggy Clark,another Redenbaugh/Douglas researcher. "This all came about becausesomeone told me the cemetery was "under a school" in Montgomery Co,and I wanted to know if that were true. Randy Patrick is anarcheologist who is the science dept head at Southmont.
      Randy has done some digs helping to establish very early cemeteries inthe
      south part of the state. Having a surface dig on the school property
      provided him with a wonderful teaching laboratory. He's beenthrilled, and
      it's so wonderful to have an expert working on this. At this pointhe is
      locating the bits of the broken headstones. Will beginreconstructing them
      soon. This is the original home property that Frederick purchased fromthe USA."
