ABOUT THE COVER Did you know... Two Men Dedicated to Preserving Our Community’s Untold History It could be said that it is a lesser known fact Westfield Washington Township maintains two historic cemeteries in Hamilton County. It is an even lesser known fact that these historic cemeteries exist within the Township where many of us live today. Yes, it is true. The first cemetery is called Sugar Grove Cemetery and it was established in 1844. It is located at 15714 Joliet Road. It is a Pioneer Cemetery and the first person to be interred into the cemetery was a man named Sidney Smith, born on 12/25/1805 and died on 5/28/1844. The second cemetery the Township maintains is called Ballard Cemetery and it was established in 1851. It is located on 161st Street between Spingmill Road and Ditch Road and it is classified as a Quaker Cemetery. That is your history lesson for the day. In 2017, the articles you’ll read about in OWWN will be about individuals involved in the Township who influence our community and have a great impact on our Township as a whole. In this edition of OWWN, you’ll get the pleasure of learning about two very interesting individuals who have a huge impact on our community by maintaining these very delicate, historical landmark cemeteries which tell so much about our community. To briefly get back to the history lesson, Indiana Code gives responsibility for maintaining abandoned cemeteries in the state to the Township. When Township Trustee, Danielle Carey Tolan, realized that she inherited these two cemeteries, she knew she needed to find the best individuals to restore them to their greatest potential so the community could be proud of these historic assets. Her first instinct was to contact an old family friend whose company had been in the landscaping business since 1963. Mr. Ron Hittle has been a friend of the Carey family for many years and Danielle knew he could help with accomplishing this task. In fact, Ron Hittle was not only familiar with these cemeteries, but was responsible for their maintenance back in the 1970’s. He was the perfect man for the job. Ron Hittle is a lifetime resident of the Westfield Washington Township. He is a retired Westfield Firefighter and has dedicated his life to serving the community. His family is well known throughout the region for his business, Hittle Landscaping. “I would guess that maintaining the Township Cemeteries back in the 1970’s was a stepping stone to Hittle Landscaping,” says Ron Hittle. “It could be possible that without Hittle Landscaping, these cemeteries may not be in existence today and for that I am extremely proud.” Ron Hittle is not alone in his dedication to preserving these two

“When you are driving by an old cemetery, take time to look at the conditions of the stones that populate the area. If it is a Pioneer Cemetery, you will most likely see many problems. Hats off to Westfield Washington Township for making it a priority to restore and preserve their landmarks.”  – Roger Crim.

community assets. He works alongside Mr. Roger Crim, a local business owner whose passion includes restoring grave markers in historic cemeteries. Roger’s attention to intricate detail has brought the Ballard Cemetery back to life with his repair and restoration. “Restoring cemeteries gives me great sense of satisfaction,” says Roger Crim. “These are truly items of history and if not preserved correctly, they will be lost.” Most of the grave markers Roger preserves are pre-1900 so they are extremely fragile and need a great deal of care during the restoration process. Markers in our local cemeteries exist in different degree of repair. Some need basic cleaning and straightening and others need a comprehensive restoration. Ron Hittle and Roger Crim are individuals making an enormous impact on our community without much recognition or acknowledgement for their important work. These cemeteries are not only historical landmarks, but tell stories of people’s lives, many of whom helped shape the existence of this community and create a place in which many of us live, work and play today. These civil servants work behind the scenes to maintain and preserve what could be our Township’s most important assets and they deserve acknowledgement for their hard work, even though many in our community are unaware these cemeteries exist. The Township would like to encourage residents to visit Ballard and Sugar Creek Cemeteries and discover these community assets and learn some unique history about our forefathers. While you’re there, take a moment to remember that without the help and dedication of Mr. Ron Hittle and Mr. Roger Crim, these landmarks could have been lost forever.
