The Hum Cemetery, in Fairfield Township SEC 14 on Metz Road, about a mile west of the Route 7 junction was established as a family cemetery by Jacob Hum and his wife Elizabeth Long Hum. Jacob's was the first burial there, in 1841.
On June 21, 1873, the quarter-acres plot was deeded by Jacob's son John Hum, and his wife Martha Rymer Hum to the Ohio Wesleyan Society - the Liberty Hill Wesleyan Methodist Church was nearby - through trustees Adam Hum, Jacob Fitzpatrick, and John Witt.
On Jan 21, 1975, title passed to the Fairfield Township Trustees from the Allegheny Wesleyan Methodist Connection at Indiana, Pa.
There have been between 60 to 70 burials in the Hum Cemetery altogether, the latest that of Homer Ray in 1965. Two Civil War veterans are buried there: Sgt. J. E. Woods, CO F, 143rd Regiment, Ohio Volunteer Infantry; and Christian Schultz, Co. D 175th Ohio Infantry.
Families other than Hums interred in the cemetery include Worman, Woods, Rymer, Reimer, Lower, Houlette, Rothwell, Scarlott, Seederly, Ray, and Miller.
