Ewalt Graveyard

Located on the east side of Cynthiana Rd. at the intersection of Cynthiana Rd. and Peacock Rd.  This cemetery was difficult to maneuver in as a large portion of it was massive stalks of weeds.  There were only 3 marked tombstones and 7 fieldstone graves.  Of the fieldstone graves, one was larger than normal being approximately 1' x 1' 8" and was located in the center of the cemetery.  (see 1st fieldstone photo)

Located in Harrison county, was probably gathered by Augustine Eastin. It was constituted of eight members, in 1790, and united with Elkhorn Association in August of the same year. It remained a member of this fraternity till 1813, when it entered into the constitution of Union Association, to which it still belongs. Augustine Eastin was its first pastor, so far as known. Under his ministry it attained a membership of ninety-five, in 1802. But the next year it divided, in consequence of Mr. Eastin's having introduced the Arian doctrine among its members. About thirty members adhered to the recreant pastor, and formed themselves into what would now be called a Unitarian Church. This faction, after the death of its leader, united with the Campbellites.

About the time of this rupture David Biggs settled in the neighborhood and became a member, and probably the pastor of Indian Creek Church. From this time till 1833, the church enjoyed peace and a good degree of prosperity. At that date it numbered 111 members. But the next year it divided again, about fifty of its members entering into the fellowship of Licking Association. From this time it continued to decline, till 1856, when it numbered only thirteen members. After that it increased slowly, till 1880, when it numbered forty-two members.

ISAAC MUNSON was a preacher in this church about sixty years. He died in 1852. Among its pastors since the death of Mr. MUNSON may be named Henry BELL, John HOLLIDAY, James SPILLMAN, A. W. MULLINS and George VARDEN.

vol. 2, pgs. 267-268

ISAAC MUNSON was the first preacher in Union Association. He was probably in the constitution of Indian Creek Church, which he first represented in Elkhorn Association, in 1792, and of which he appears to have been pastor till his death, which occurred in 1852. Of this church he was a member at least 62 years.

Note: There appears to be numerous crude field stone type headstones that are possibly gravesites for servants who work for the respective families, but obviously there is no way as to be certain.

Throughout the years, I have received many visits from relatives of the existing gravesites in the cemetery which has enhanced my knowledge of the circumstances surrounding our lives. Not to mention, the visits from people who have traced their relatives is the cemetery, only to find no evidence to conclude their search, but that's not to say that these unidenified gravesites do not exist in the cemetery. Mrs. Alice Freeman Hills and I have discussed the possiblity of Henry Lander (Father of Charles and Henry, The Patriarch) who traveled to Bourbon County to live) being buried here, since there is a copy of Henry's Estate Sale on record in Bourbon County. Also, it is believed that Thomas Spencer and Margaret Lander (daughter of Charles and consort of Thomas) are buried here in the cemetery, as they were living in this area when they died, but time has the ability to erase the facts sometimes. Regardless, facts are facts, and I have thoroughly enjoyed the quest for the facts surround Landers Lane.

Located directly across from 4366 Lexington Road.  Approximately 1/16 mile off the road and surrounded by a black plank fence.  This graveyard included several fieldstone marker.  The following is a complete list of marked graves.

The Marsh Cemetery is located in Paris at Legion Park, on the right side of the entrance leading into the Bourbon County Fairgrounds.  The cemetery sits on the edge of the road and is enclosed inside of eight rock pillars with chains between nearly each one.  This enclosure was apparently not original to the cemetery as they are not in the photo from the 1978 newspaper article below.  There also appears to be eight sections which are divided off with rolls of rocks along the top, sides and bottom.  The entire surface is covered in rocks, some of which may be fieldstone markers.  In the far left plot sets two graves belonging to Beal and Nicholas Marsh. The inscription of Beal Marsh is unreadable except for his name
