Burials in New Carlisle (Honey Creek Church) Cemetery, Clark County, Ohio

Submitted by  David C. Burns July, 2002

"Compiled by Mrs. Bernis Brien of Dayton, circa 1930 - 1932: included in her volume on Miami County Cemeteries in its original publication, but omitted from the copy of same made up by Mrs. Brien for the Troy Miami County Library.

This record is from Xerox copies obtained from the Dayton Public Library.

Some Miami County families lived in nearby Clark County: moved there at one time - and some Clark County families also lived in Miami County in some of their branches. Land was bought and sold by members of families both in Clark and Miami Counties.

This list is provided as aid in research on families whose members moved, lived and died in Clark County, who had formerly been residents of Miami County.

It should be noted that because of the time when this inscription reading was done, it only covers the old sections of the cemetery, and there are omissions from the old sections as well. I think the explanation for these omissions may be that Mrs. Brien was only transcribing surnames of families she knew to be Miami County residents, although this doesn't explain the omission of some child and infant burials and inclusion of others for the same surname. In any case, the inscriptions here are a small subset of the entire cemetery (about 5 per cent). As the cemetery has been enlarged and is still in active use, any burial post-1933 will not be found in this document, aside from omissions in the old sections. The original document is alphabetical by surname (but not by given name, suggesting that she may have maintained some indication of side-by-side burials) but did not capture section numbers or row/stone indications. I have maintained the original sequence as she typed it.

I have included the individuals that I happened to capture on a visit in 1999 and in some subsequent research. (My own additions are not necessarily direct transcriptions of the gravestones (e.g., a stone might have had a date of death and lifespan, but I've already converted that to a birth date).)

This document is a machine-readable version of her typescript. The xerographic copies are becoming increasingly illegible as new copies are made of old as they become worn from use. Soon they would be illegible. My original plan was to scan and use optical character recognition to convert, but the quality is already so degraded from the original typescript (which may not have been all that great to begin with) that it became clear, after the initial attempt at OCR, that re-keying the data was really the only reliable way to proceed. I have tried to be true to the original, only correcting unambiguous typographic errors; where I have had any doubt, I have included a notation. The only other stylistic clarification I have made is the addition of "y m d" designations on lifespan statements to eliminate any uncertainty. In rare cases, I have made a clarification entry in the notation column; all other notations are in the original.
