After the flood waters from the Ohio and the Scioto Rivers receded, my awesome sidekick, Gus, and two great friends, Eli and Arlene Allen, met at a nearly forgotten and unrecorded cemetery site about a one mile trek through fields off US Route 23 in Scioto County, Ohio. Eli had found the site and got permission from the land owner to visit and record the site. The cemetery, as near as we could tell within the overgrown area, had two sections to it; one walled-in with the majority of the markers (at least 7), and the other, bounded, but not walled, with at least 4. It is very likely that there are more burials at this quiet, out of the way place.
The walled section contained: Kitty M. Mastin, 2/11/1813-7/31/1842; Lucy S. Masten (that is spelling on stone), died 9/16/1838 aged 24; Mrs. Rebecca Mastin, consort of C.T. Mastin, died 3/20/1834 aged 61; Charles T. Mastin, died 12/2/1843, age 71(?), 11m, 17d; Turner M. Mastin, 5/25/1797-11/15/1847; Ellen S. Mastin, 10/22/1818-10/5/1847; Sarah T. Miller, 1836-1874(?). Thank you to Gus for recording each stone.
In the other section, four stones: Jesse, son of J & M Crites, died 1846(?) age 6 yrs, 2(?) m, 2o d; Mary, daughter of J & M Crites, died 8/20/1842 aged 8(?) mos.; unknown, died aged 28 years, 8m, 6d, 9/30/1844; James Huston, died 1842. Jesse, as well as Mary and the unknown burial, were nearly lost beneath detritus; Arlene and Eli exposed them so they can be recorded.
Very grateful to the land owner for permission and to Eli and Arlene for the great afternoon in the sun.
