I stopped by the Newark
Baptist Church Cemetery and wrote down the info on about 21 stones. Most
of the stones are in bad shape, and I'm sure there are many others that are
covered over with dirt. Someone probably has the records of who all is
buried there but I decided to write down what I could find while I was there.
Corbo?; Corbin; Clifton; Nelson; Hayden; Long; Moore; Washington; Perkins; Hiram
Hickman; White; Richardson; Downing; Trosper; and Kniss. Lois:

I just revisited the Rouner-Minor
Cemetery page. There are actually 6 marked graves there. The
Rouner monument is to Argyle, Lucinda (Morris) Rouner and daughter
Catherine Rouner who was unmarried and died young.
b. June 9, 1810
d. Aug 16 1882
Lucinda (Morris) Rouner of a Pioneer Morris family
b. Aug 6, 1809
d. May 22, 1853 shortly after Rouners of Henry County KY moved
from Marion County, MO
b. Dec 12, 1850 in Kentucky
d. June 11, 1867
The Rouner Parents should be included, as they were
the progenitors of the Rouner Family in Knox County and ancestors of
Rouner, Berry, McKenzie, and Minor descendants. Someone looking
for Rouner genealogy would be misdirected by this omission.
