Wilson Chapel Cemetery

submitted by Betsy Earley, August 2001

updated July, 2012

The Wilson Chapel Cemetery is located east of the village of Plattsburg, in Harmony Township, Clark Co. Ohio, on the Plattsburg-London Road. Wilson Chapel stands to the east of the cemetery but is now a private residence. The graves in the Wilson Chapel Cemetery are mainly those which have some family relationship to the Wilson Family, one of the pioneering families of Clark County and Harmony Township. This cemetery was read by Betsy Earley and her son Matt, in the summers of 2000 and 2001, granddaughter-in-law, and Matthew Earley, great-grandson, of Bessie Florence Wilson Farish in memory of Grandma Bessie and her Wilson relatives buried here.  This file is by alphabetical. As of this date, the cemetery is very weathered and some inscriptions are slowly becoming unreadable. If you see any comments or errors, please contact Betsy and she and verify them for you.
