Hosier Family Graveyard

"My family lives in Dayton, Ohio. We have been on this property for four years. Upon purchase we were introduced to a small graveyard adjacent to our property. It is approximately 30' by 30' in size and contains an unknown quantity of graves, but estimated at 12 to 15. There are two visible gravestones. One is clearly marked as Isaac Hosier Snr. Died May 22, 1846. One is broken and appears to be Robert Hosier Died Feb. 25, 1861, who was a War of 1812 veteran. Isaac's age is shown as 71 years, 11 months and 18 days. There are other broken stones with illegible engravings.

Research with the Montgomery County Library indicates that the Hosiers came to this area, from Virginia, along the "National Trail" (Route 40) in the 1700s. Isaac and Robert were brothers and were of a family of 13 brothers and sisters. Isaac claimed 160 acres and Robert 60 acres. This property immediately borders I-75 just south of I-70.

There has been recent interest in the graveyard due to an expansion of I-75, which may come close to the site. The county had scanned the ground with GPR (Ground Penetrating Radar). I have many pages about that examination as well as some family history. I would love to find someone that may be related to this family."
