      There is a Breden Burial Ground at The Potato Run United Methodist Church
      (formerly known as The Potato Run United Brethren In Christ Church) which was
      first known as Brown's Camp Ground. Some of the markers are missing, but this
      cemetery is well kept.
      There is a Potato Run Cemetery also located on the church grounds and many
      Breden ancestors are buried there. Some Breeden are buried at New Amsterdam,
      IN.

      Harrison County.

      This area was the settlement for the early pioneers and remains much as it was
      then.
