Mentzer Cemetery
Convoy, Van Wert County, Ohio

Lat: 40° 55' 52"N, Lon: 84° 45' 53"W
Tully Twp, T1S Sec 28

Contributed by Lynn Davis, Jun 03, 2006 [dlbd74@watchtv.net]. Total records = 221.

To reach the Mentzer Cemetery from Convoy, drive west on Convoy Road for 3 miles, then right/north onto Mentzer Church Road for one mile. Cemetery is on east/right side of the road, beside the church.

Alexander Mentzer purchased the land for this cemetery from the widow, Laura Richey, on 7 Mar 1867. On 30 Jan 1869, Alexander sold ˝ an acre to the trustees of the Union Church, for a church site. Five years later, 30 Jan 1874, Alexander sold 3/4 acre to the Trustees of the burying ground.

Tully Township Trustees took over the care of the cemetery on 1 Mar 1940. At the time this cemetery was read, Aug 1980, it was still in use. I’m not sure about that now.

These inscriptions were read by Eugene Smith in Aug 1980 and donated to the local library. I have copied his work with permission on Jun 03, 2006.
