Muddy Run Cemetery


Located in Section 32 Salem Twp immediately south of the Logan County Line. Access is from Logan County, State Road 245 to Liberty Twp, road # 195 about one quarter mile from Route 245. Cemetery is completely overgrown with the majority of its tombstones no longer in an upright position. It has been a fair-sized cemetery at one time and there most likely were more stones than were found, however, inscriptions were transcribed from all legible tombstones. Inscriptions taken in Spring 1969.

NOTE concerning DAR readings from Karen Heber: DAR was tasked with certain things to identify.  They normally did not write down children, infants or single individuals.  Their objective was married people and those who served in the military.  That is why many of the readings differ so drastically from other readings done later.  However, some of the DAR representatives “read the whole cemetery”.  Again, they did not use interment or lot records and were subjective at their writings. Please be aware there are dozens of inaccuracies and dis-information from these readings.
