A History of Jackson County, Ohio: Volume I The Scioto Salt Springs by D. W. Williams (Jackson, Ohio, 1900) states:
“This old burial ground occupies the greater part of outlot 26, and a part of outlot 27 in the south half of the original town of Jackson. The lots were laid out by Gabriel McNeel, the county surveyor, on May 25, 1819, but the spot had been selected for a town cemetery before that date, for Charles O'Neil was buried there May 17, 1819. … Outlots 26 and 27 were purchased by Peter Bunn …“
“More than 700 persons have been interred in this cemetery, but the graves of the great majority were left unmarked, and even the names of many of them have been forgotten. For instance, 217 bodies were removed in March, 1900, to Fairmount, of whom only 64 were known. “
