The Dover Cemetery is on both sides of Steinersville Road, which is a short spur road off East Captiva Highway (Ohio State Route 148) that was formerly part of East Captiva Highway, which is 1.0 mile east of the intersection of East Captiva Highway with Clover Ridge Road (County Road 5) and about 5.8 miles northwest of Powhatan Point following Ohio State Route 148. Many references treat this cemetery as two separate cemeteries, the north side being the New Dover Cemetery and the south side being the Old Dover Cemetery.
The section on the south side has a few steps going up to it and it's the oldest, being established circa 1841. The section on the North side of the road was established about 1900. Both sections have several Civil War veterans buried there.
Don't confuse this cemetery with the "First Dover Cemetery", which is close by, on Potts Road (Township Road 506) where it dead ends. The "First Dover Cemetery", established in 1814, was moved to its present location by a coal mine company which strip mined the original cemetery.
The cemetery is located in York Township, Belmont County, Ohio. The portion on the north side of the road is identified as # 1049 (Dover Cemetery #1) in “Ohio Cemeteries 1803-2003”, compiled by the Ohio Genealogical Society. The portion on the south side of the road is identified as # 15240 (Dover Cemetery #1 [Note: This is a typo. It should be #2.]) in “Ohio Cemeteries 1803-2003”, compiled by the Ohio Genealogical Society.
The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Geographic Names Information System (GNIS) feature ID for the cemetery is 1699365 (Dover Cemetery).
