                Cemetery Transcription was made on  Thursday, October 9, 2003,  by Lona Brown Stevens and Martha Eveland Brown

This cemetery is very old and is in terrible shape. Effort has been done by an unidentified gentleman to cut and clean the
brush from the spot,   to which we are grateful for his concern for this forgotten cemetery. Some of the stones
could not be found that were indicated from other   transcribers of this cemetery.  Some of the old stones that are
there are broken and weather worn, making it hard to see the names and dates.   Since it is in such array a
comparison of other transcriptions were looked at to find the most accurate reading as  possible.  
    If you have relatives that are buried here or have a correction, please contact me, because every effort
should be made to insure accuracy of   these pioneers of Hocking County.  

                                                     Also myself and another transcriber saw three  different interpretations of names.
                                                                                             James Hughes  or Hatcher.
