"Old" Mt. Zion Cemetery, Jackson County, Ohio Transcription


Ronda Wilburn Houston, MyMoores@aol.com, provided this transcription and says:

My mother, stepdad, and I went out to what Mom called the "Old" Mt Zion Cemetery outside Jackson and spent a few hours recording cemetery markers. I am attaching our results. A lot of the markers here are covered with honeysuckle and have weathered so much that they are practically illegible, but I have noted what I could from those. My mother's father is buried here -- William L. Moore -- along with her grandparents and a lot of their relatives. Hope this helps someone!
