Title Pine Village Cemetery-NW section
Text The Pine Village cemetery is located just outside of town on the west side. It is the largest cemetery in Warren County east of highway 41. There are 1000 names included in this cemetery--some dating to the mid 1830's. The oldest section is located in the northwest corner on a high bank overlooking Pine Creek. Most of the old stones are in good conditions and the cemetery itself is well cared for. The Campbell family section contains several old sandstone markers. Since this type of stone weathers badly it is unusual to see so many in one area. An old pine tree was found growing around one of the small markers!

Bits of Benton County Indiana History
Samuel C. Fenton M. D.

Dr. Fenton was born in Warren county, Indiana, November 29, 1844, and has been a lifelong resident of the state, although he has made his home in Boswell, Benton county, only during the past three years. He is a son of Joseph A. and Margaret (Campbell) Fenton. The father was born in the southern part of the state in 1817, and died in 1852, at the age of thirty-five years. He was a farmer of Warren county and owned one hundred and fifty acres of land at the time of his demise. He was married in 1840 to Margaret Campbell, who died in Boswell in 1897, at the age of seventy-nine years. Three children were born to them: Eleazer, born in 1841 and died in 1860; Samuel C.; our subject; and Flora E., born in 1851 and is now the widow of R. W. Stewart. The paternal grandparents of Dr. Fenton were Eleazer and Elizabeth (Englemond) Fenton, the former an American and the latter a German. The maternal grandparents were Samuel and Peggy (Cobb) Campbell. Dr. Fenton attended the district school in Warren county until he was fifteen years of age, when he entered the Battle Ground University for three years. There he began the study of medicine under the preceptorship of H. D. Riddile, M. D. , and then took a course of lectures in Rush Medical College, Chicago, during 1866-7, graduating at the institution in 1870. In the summer of 1867 he began the practice of his profession in Pine Village, Indiana, and continued in active practice there for twenty-five years, gaining a large and lucrative patronage. In 1890, he was chosen auditor of Warren County, and served four years, at the same time keeping up his practice. In 1895 he moved to Boswell, where he has met with a hearty welcome and has proved his ability and skill in dealing with sickness in all its varied forms. He was married September 23, 1869, in his native county, to Miss Anna Pierce, a daughter of Milton and Sarah S. (Morgan) Pierce. Mrs. Fenton also is a native of Warren County, having been born there April 18, 1849. They have no children of their own and have reared two daughters, - Nanny Bowman and Lucy Marie Fenton, - giving them a good home. The Doctor is a member of the Masonic lodge, and belongs to the Knights of Pythias, where he has served in all the offices. He is a member of the Methodist Episcopal church, and a Republican in politics, having served as auditor of Warren county one term, and trustee of Adams township, that county, two terms. He is genial and affable and has made a host of friends in this county since his advent here.
