- "According to information about Adam Kern's grave, which is located in section 22, Van Buren Township, Adam lived on this spot when he died and was buried there at his request so as to be in 'the beloved fields and woods where he hunted and trapped.' Isaac Dunlap, current (1965) owner of the farm on which the grave stands, says he understands the entire field surrounding the grave was once a grove of sugar maple trees and when he plows a certain spot, some 100 yards from the grave, he finds evidence of a sugar maple camp." His grave is known as Kern Cemetery in Monroe County, Ind. records. However, it is a single grave. The farm of Isaac Dunlap, whose house faces State Road 45, just northeast of the small town of Stanford. The grave is in an open field, near a fence and not far from a road know as the Dunlap Road, is also about 2-300 yards from the Dunlap barn. The grave us surrounded by a stone curbing over which is laid a stone slab 5 ft. long by 2 1/2 ft. wide. This type of marker is unusual for Monroe County, possibly was planned by someone with memories in the east or in Europe. Actually the stone is to have been placed there, not by family, but by a friend, at least this is the story recalled by Isaac Dunlap as having been told by a neighbor who was a Civil War veteran and who had heard the story from a friend. The site of the grave (said the friend) was among the beloved fields and woods where Adam hunted and trapped and where he was buried at his own request."
