aka Old Settlers Cemetery, aka Wells Family Cemetery, aka Joe Boley Cemetery, aka Mohican Baptist Cemetery. (known by many names)
In October 2010 found new sign at the cemetery that says Ripley Township Cemetery.
note: this cemetery is near Big Prairie, but not in any municipality (Holmes Co., Ohio).
"Beginning at Big Prairie, go East a mile until reaching Township Road 512. Turn South and proceed about 800 ft until you reach a wooded area. There on the West about 50 ft above the road is an old cemetery with many names."

In 2010, we found a gravel parking area on a steep hill.
In front of the gravel is a chained gate-we were able to walk around the gate/fence. Continue to walk up the hill to the neat cemetery. Many stones unreadable, many broken, many missing.
The cemetery is located in Ripley Township, Holmes County, Ohio, and is # 5668 (Baptist Old Settlers Cemetery / Joe Boley Cemetery / Old Wells Cemetery) in “Ohio Cemeteries 1803-2003”, compiled by the Ohio Genealogical Society.
