Section C

Note from Mark Hayward: My great-great-great-grandparents were among the early settlers in Mill Creek Township. They were both born in Maryland. They are buried along with at least one son and one daughter in Section C at Wesleyan Cemetery. I discovered these graves in the summer of 2000. The grass had been cut recently but nevertheless was in a disgraceful condition. While pulling up clods of grass, I found the handle of a coffin. My ancestors were buried in that section between 1837 and 1898. Joseph and Emaline were also the parents of Henry R. Hayward, a local patriot in the Civil War.

Tombstone of Alice Hayward, born April 24, 1847, and died February 24, 1874. Alice is the daughter of Joseph D. and Emeline Hayward.
