Cemetery Readings by Webb Haslam
The Wise Cemetery is located in the SE corner of section6 of Summit Township in Monroe County, Ohio. This cemetery is found on the north side of State Route 78, about two miles west of Lewisville. There is a creek that runs along Route 78 at this point, and the cemetery is on the other side of the creek. There was a log church at this site in the 1800's, and the area was once known as Wise's Station, but that is all the information that I know about that. Hopefully there is someone out there who can give more information about the church.
This past Fall, Webb Haslam read the stones in the Wise Cemetery. He found 24 stones in the cemetery, and was able to read 16 of them. He says there may also be more laying down that he didn't see. Below are the 16 stones that he was able to identify. In the Spring, I will take photos of them and post them on this site.
