James Funeral Home Records

James Funeral Home Records
Charlestown, Indiana


This list of names is transcribed from 8 note books kept by J.B. James for funeral services in Charlestown, Indiana. All names, dates and locations provided in the books are transcribed here. This is the order in which the names are listed in the books and are mostly in date order. There is additional information in the books about services provided and costs.

"Buried by" should be taken as who paid for or arranged the burial. Many of the entries start like this "Clark County for..." or "Charlestown Township for..." or "a relative's name for...".

"Infirmary Cemetery" is the Poor Farm Cemetery on Highway 62 in Charlestown, Indiana. The Poor Farm Ledger has been scanned and can be seen on Indiana Memory.

The funeral home books were given to the library in 2012 by David James. A letter written by James accompanied the books. It states that the books belonged to his granddad James, and then by his father, David L. James. He indicates that book 13 is the last book and was written by his father who sold the business to Chris Grayson. With these books were some Indiana State Board of Health Permit for Burial forms with James N. Teeple as undertaker in Charlestown, Indiana dated between 1906 and 1910. Transcriptions are here. Books are located in Special Collections at Charlestown Library.

John Van Cleve, 65, Is Motor Victim
John Van Cleve, 65, who lived on Road No. 62, three miles east of Charlestown, was killed instantly Saturday night, at 8:45 o'clock, by an automobile as he was walking along the highway a mile from his home.
W.J. Warren, a neighbor, who was walking with Van Cleve at the time of the accident, told Sheriff Claude Conner that the victim apparently became confused and stepped into the path of the approaching machine, driven by Ross A. Miller, of Betterdorf, Iowa.
Funeral services were arranged for this afternoon, at 2:30 o'clock, from the James Funeral home at Charlestown, with burial in the Charlestown Cemetery.
Mr. Van Cleve was a native of Indiana, and after living in Kentucky for a period of time, located in Clark County about twenty years ago.
He is survived by three sons and two daughters; a sister, Mrs. Lezzri Oaks, of Prospect, Ky.; and two half-brothers, Stylie Thompson, of Prospect and George Thompson, of R.R. No. 1, Jeffersonville.
