To reach cemetery from Convoy, drive east on Convoy Road, turn right/southeast onto Lincoln Hwy/West Ridge Rd. and continue for three miles. Cemetery is in the southwest corner of intersection with Richey Road.
On 4 Jun 1860, Ebenezer & Ellen Griffith sold 1 acre and 69 rods to the Trustees of the Methodist Episcopal Church, with the purpose of building a church and setting aside a suitable portion for a burying ground, for the surrounding area. The cemetery remained in the care of the church trustees until 19 Jun 1975, when it was deeded for $1, and other considerations, to the Pleasant Township Trustees.
Since that time, the cemetery has fallen into a state of disrepair. Nearly 1/3 of the stones are in a pile, at the west end of the lot, in an unmowed area. A clean-up and restoration project has been planned, by the Pleasant Township Trustees. The original frame church, Dix Church, burned on 27 Sep 1981. A new, larger brick-faced church was built. Evidently the grounds were used as a cemetery before they were sold for that purpose, as the first burial, according to the inscriptions, appears to be that of Jesse C. Curl, who died 22 May 1850. The last burial was that of William H. "Bill" Mullen in 1969.
This cemetery was origianlly read by Helen & Linda Prill, on the weeks of 3 Jul 1980 and 3 Apr 1981 and donated to the local library. I have copied this work with permission on Jun 06, 2006.- Lynn Davis
