Here is more info on IN,Johnson-Co's best-known & most unusual grave.
The historical marker reads:

"Nancy Kerlin BARNETT
Born May 14, 1793 - Died Dec. 1, 1831
Married to William BARNETT, Feb 20, 1808.
He was born Sep 27, 1780, drowned in Ohio River Sep 24, 1854.
William was the great-great-great-grandson of Pocahontas & John ROLFE.
Daniel O. DOTY, 1846-1934, protected his grandmother's grave by
staying here with his gun, while the county relocated this cemetery
in order to build the road. A concrete slab was placed over
the grave, to protect the marker, Aug 8, 1912."
