They also encourage personal visits to their sites. Historical Note: Fisherville was a settlement located at the lower end of the cemetery at the first entrance to the cemetery. Early in the centrury the entrance was moved to the upper end. There was a little settlement called Jacksonville at that entrance, both settlements were incorporated in the then growing Steubenville.
