|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
This cemetery was at one of the early churches in Wooster, Wayne County, Ohio.
"Wooster is compactly and well built, and is a place of much business. The view was taken near ARCHER'S store, and shows a part of the public square, with the west side of Market street: the county buildings are shown on the left, and the spire of the Baptist church in the distance. The town contains 1 Presbyterian, 1 Methodist, 1 German Lutheran, 1 German Reformed, 1 Seceder, 1 Disciples, 1 Lutheran, 1 Baptist church, a female seminary in good repute, 4 grocery, 10 dry goods, 2 hardware, 2 book and 3 drug stores, 1 bank, and had, in 1840, 1913 inhabitants, and now is estimated to contain 2700. Carriage-making is "extensively carried on.—Old Edition."
There is a masonic section in this old cemetery, people in the local Masonic group may know where this old cemetery is exactly.
"McMonigal was one of the founders of the Seceder Church in Wooster, of which he was said to be an exemplary member until his death. Wayne County historian Ben Douglass credits McMonigal as being "ever recognized as of the strictest integrity."
