Selma M. E. Church Cemetery

Selma Pike, 1/2 mile north of Rte 42, Selma, Ohio

(currently known as the Lovelight Gospel Chapel cemetery)

as transcribed by Julie Noble October 1, 2002

The following entries are taken directly from the Selma Methodist Church and cemetery records. While I read the inscriptions from the markers originally, I found that many of them are either very worn or not readable at all. I have relied heavily on the church records for dates to insure accuracy, however I have added inscriptions and notations from the markers. The notations in parentheses are from church and family records; and notations in quotation marks are actual inscriptions. There are many markers that are simply not there any more and I have made those indications where ever necessary. Also, while most of these family members are placed very close to one another, I have also made notations where some were buried with others to show that they may have been related and placed in the "family plot".
