The Hicksite Society of Friends Meeting House and Cemetery “Little Brick”

South Charleston – Clifton Road

Madison Twp., Selma, Ohio

As Transcribed by Julie Noble October 1, 2002

This listing is a combination of two things: a physical reading by myself and actual cemetery records. However, the cemetery records are not a record of names and dates, but rather a plot map. By comparing my reading to the plot map, I was able to discern to whom the illegible markers belonged, as well as being able to see who was missing a marker altogether. I'm told that more extensive records may be found at the Wilmington College Library where records are kept regarding the Green Plain Monthly Meeting (Friends) history. This is a very well laid out cemetery and all of the markers are in neat straight lines, all facing the same direction. Most of the markers can still be read today, however there are a few older, very weathered ones. I have made notations where ever necessary to help with possible "family relationships". It appears that most of the family are buried with one another, but there are a few stray burials. Any notations within quotation marks are actual inscriptions on the markers themselves and notations within parentheses are possible or certain family relationships.

Directions to the cemetery

South Charleston-Clifton Rd is about 2 miles east of Selma Pike off Rte 42. Turn north on South Charleston - Clifton Rd. and go about 1 mile, just past Dolly Varden Rd. (which is off to the right). The Hicksite Meeting house sits on the north side of the road and can be recognized as a single story little brick building with 2 sets of white front doors. It is situated right near the road. The cemetery is behind the meeting house.
