PREACHER CEMETERY

An acre of land for the PREACHER CEMETERY was donated about 1890-1895 by Mr. Henry Preacher, Sr. and originally located on his property ten miles north of Hamilton. Preacher Cemetery is south of Olin and on the east side of US 281 on CR 205 in the old Ondee Community near the Gum Branch School.  

When my great, great-grandmother, Virginia Reamy Fergusson died in January, 1914, ice had to be broken on Gum Branch Creek so that the funeral cortege could reach Preacher Cemetery to bury her in an unmarked grave. In 1994 a tombstone in her memory was placed in the Pottsville Public Cemetery, beside the grave of her oldest son, William Henry Jarius Fergusson, my great-grandfather.

Some of the people who were buried in Preacher Cemetery were:
