Description: This cemetery is located on Mad River Road in New Market Township It has
no office and all records are held by the township trustees. It is not a large cemetery.
It is well-kept and in good condition. Many of the old stones are weather-worn and no
longer legible. It does have a small driveway that goes through the cemetery so it is not
necessary to park on the shoulder of the road.
History: This cemetery was plotted in February 1799 by Henry Massie. The oldest burials
are believed to be that of Robert Branson and Adam Medsker in 1801.
War of 1812 Veterans buried here are: George Barrere, Jos. Malcom, Solomon Ludwick,
James Morrow John Eakins, and Benjamin Eakins.
Source: Data for this cemetery comes from physically reading each monument.
