Lemuel Davisson

Lemuel, third child of Isaac and Sarah (Curl) Davisson, was a farmer in Pleasant Township, south of the cemetery. His first log home still stands, at the south end end of Davisson Road near State Route 56, and the road was named for his farm, though it is spelled "Davidson" on Clark County maps.

He was a lay leader in the Methodist Church, and he and his wife Susan were instrumental in the founding of Nation Chapel, named in honor of Rev. Philip Nation.

Lemuel died an untimely death from typhus inadvertently brought home by his son from Camp Chase during the Civil War. He was survived by his wife, a daughter, three sons, an infant grandson, his mother, and many other relatives and friends.



Inscription

Mark the perfect man
and behold the upright
for the end of that
man is peace.
37 Ps. 37 v.

Sleep dear husband
sleep dear father
Gentle brother chris-
tian friend
Soon we'll meet thy
happy spirit
Meet where partings
have an end.

Husband and father
Thou has left us
We thy loss most
deeply feel
But 'tis God that hath
bereft us
He can all our sor-
rows heal.
