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: sweetoak at marktwain dot net

I stopped by a burial site on Rte. E about 2 miles east of the Minor-Rouner site and wrote down the names on those gravestones.  There were around 8 of them.

April 15, 1862

Fannie A. (daughter of W.H. & M.E. Elston)
wife of J. Lear

Born May 29, 1846?
Died ? (stone broken)

Thomas R. (son of JS & FA Lear )
Born July 5, 1869
Died August 6, 1869 ?

Broken stone reading: Died Sept 29, 1864

Another: R.P. Elston

Hope this helps.

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.
A.A. Rouner
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

Caroline Rouner
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.
