McDowell Fogle in his History of Ohio Co.
stated that "So far as is known the city's
first burial plot was the Morton Family plot,
located on Old Main Street, across from
Wayland Alexander School. This plot was
designated on the original plot of Hartford
as Out lots nos. 25 and 26......
There are some twenty family names
appearing here.
This plot of 3/4 of an acre was reserved
for burial purposes when the Isaac Morton
estate was settled about 1875."
The burials in this cemetery are recorded
in Ohio County Historical Society Vol 1,
page 155 as "Wayland Alexander Cemetery"
and in OCHS Vol. 4 as "Old Render Cemetery".
