Contributed by Kevin Damon, Jun 25, 2010, last edited Jun 28, 2010[duetmaster@aol.com]. Total records = 70.

In West Milton, drive west on State Hwy 571, turning left or south onto Markley Road. The cemetery is on the right or west side of the road at this intersection.

I do not know the history of this cemetery. It is owned and maintained, at this time, by the Union Township Trustees. Contact: 9497 Markley Road, PO Box E, Laura, Ohio 45337, phone: 937-698-4480, fax: 937-698-6171.

I walked this cemetery and compared my work with the sexton records. Obvious errors in the records were discarded in favor of tombstone inscriptions. When the legibility of the tombstone is in question, the discrepancy with the records are noted.

Transcription was made from tombstones and cross-checked with sexton records, completed on 24 Jun 2010.
