Kimberlin Creek Baptist Church Cemetery, Lexington Township, Scott County, Indiana show 3 Suttons buried, Obed and 2 sons, William A. and Joshua A.

Kimberlin Creek Baptist Church Cemetery is located on State Road 356 about midway between Vienna and Lexington. It derives its name from the stream, a tributary of Stucker Creek, which in turn was named for Scott County's first settler, John Kimberlin, who came here in 1804. The church was organized at the Plymouth Schoolhouse on June 1, 1849. Elder John Chambers (1800-1882) served as pastor until 1853. Red-brick School No. 12 stood in the churchyard for many years, and was finally burned down in 1964. Cemetery is well cared for and is still in use.
