In L. Lillian Wise's "A History of Jackson Township, Sandusky County Ohio", page 54, she relates this story:

" It is in connection with Michael Long and his wife that the first grave was made in Smith Cemetery. Their first child, a girl, not many months old, died and there must be a burial place ...... The rains had made travel well nigh impossible so a small group of men with Michael Long riding ahead on horseback with the small coffin cradled in his arms made the sad journey to the resting place. The small child is buried in the Southeast part of the cemetery with a soldier resting on either side ... in not far from the road.
" (sic) Rev. Michael Long came to Sandusky County in 1834. He was a minister of the United Brethren Church.
