Myers Cemetery

     This Cemetery is located at the end of a gravel Twp Rd, which appears to be a private drive.  It ends behind the barns of a farm, in a clearing of a small woods  near the south bank of the Blanchard River.  The cemetery is enclosed in a wire fence with a gate.  It is a very peaceful setting.  Not too many people even know it exists.  I was told by a relative of the farm owners, who has a cemetery located on his farm as well (Kirkendall Cemetery). This cemetery was established in 1839, seven years after the arrival of the Myers Family, when  John Myers Sr died.  Since there was no cemetery at the time the family buried him at the back of their log cabin on the bank of the Blanchard River.  It has remained a family burial ground.  A Civil War Vet, Isaiah Crone is interred here (no stone found at the time of my visit).   This is a complete listing of all available information to date.
